- Bukola Saraki said President Buhari is committed to the fight against corruption
- He alleged that recovered loots were being stolen by anti-graft agencies
- He said this was affecting return of foreign loots to Nigeria
Senate president, Bukola Saraki, has alleged that the reason foreign nations are reluctant to return looted funds to Nigeria was because of the bad management of them.
The Punch reports that the Senate president made these remarks at the ‘Strategic Retreat on Tracking the Progress of Anti-Corruption Bills in the National Assembly’ in Abuja on Tuesday, November 28.

Saraki alleged that proceeds of corruption recovered by the government were being looted by anti-corruption agencies which was affecting return of foreign loots.
He said the National Assembly was focused on the issue of corruption and addressing the problem.
He said every bill passed was tilted towards how the National Assembly would contribute to the fight against corruption.
Saraki said President Muhammadu Buhari’s commitment towards the fight against corruption was not in doubt.
He said: “In related matters, Nigeria is finding it difficult to convince other nations to return funds looted from our treasury.
“This is because of the other nations’ exasperation over the management of returned assets.
“Only recently, Mr. President inaugurated a committee to audit all assets recovered by various government agencies.
“The National Assembly has been strident about the opacity shrouding the management of recovered funds, which in many cases get re-looted by the agencies that investigated and recovered them.

“An ad hoc committee of the Senate, which is investigating some administrative infractions in the Executive, has discovered that many properties recovered from a fugitive from the law have not been accounted for by the investigating agency.
“This gives the global community great concern about the commitment of Nigeria to the anti-corruption drive."
Meanwhile, Reno Omokri, the former spokesperson to ex-president Goodluck Jonathan, reacted to a statement credited to the chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee on Anti-Corruption (PACAC), Prof. Itse Sagay, that if Jonathan had another three years in the office, Nigerians would have been crossing Sahara to Libya.
Omokri, in a long Facebook post, which was also shared on Jonathan's official page, claimed that according to a report by World Bank, the Nigerian economy was better under Jonathan's government.
He wondered by what parameter Sagay is using to make his "jaundiced judgment".
