Sequel to much criticism that greeted President Muhammadu Buhari’s inability to reveal recovered assets on his democracy day broadcast as earlier promised, the Presidency on Monday reassured Nigerians that President Buhari has not rescinded his decision to publish the amounts that have been recovered by his administration from those who had allegedly looted the nation’s treasury.
This was revealed by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily on Monday, May 30.
During the his interaction with Channels Television panelists, a lot of question bothering on controversies generated by the President’s national broadcast on Sunday.
Mr Shehu had this to say;
The President had promised that the information would made public when his administration clocks one year but Mr Shehu said that “the President did not at any time say he was going to name names”.
Mr Shehu expressed surprise that the issue had generated so much negative reactions from Nigerians, explaining that the President did not cancel his decision to announce the seizures that have been made.
“What he (President) said was that the Minister of Information will be making a pronouncement on this and this is going to happen when work resumes from Tuesday.
“This is likely going to be out by Wednesday, or latest by Thursday. So nothing has changed from the position that there will be disclosure.
“The President has given authorisation that these assets that have been taken back from those who took from the treasury be put out there. So my view is that nothing is lost.”
