We have recovered over N1bn from S/South alone – EFCC

According to the Zonal head of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in Rivers state, Ishaq Saliu, over N1 billion was recovered from looters of public funds between January and September 2016, with 24 convictions. Saliu said this while addressing Niger Delta youths who yesterday staged a protest to the commissions office over the current investigations into the $15 million found in four company accounts linked to former first lady, Patience Jonathan.

The youths alleged the investigation was selective.
"There is nothing selective in the cases of EFCC. We are professionals to the core. Once an allegation is made, before somebody is even invited, the invitation is the last leg of our cases. Bank documents and things we need to inquire would have been gotten. Port Harcourt Zonal office alone, this year, has 24 convictions and recovered over a billion naira” he said

We are tired of these stories of what was & what is recovered. The question should be what is it being used for? cos people are suffering in this land. Some times I wonder how it got to this. I just wonder if this party will ever win another election in this land.

And how much was recovered from South west( especially Tinubu, Fashola, Obasanjo etc)? How much was recovered from the North? Babangida, Gowon, Atiku Abubakar, Abdulsalami Abubakar etc. How much was recovered from Amaechi?
I support fight against corruption, but it has to be holistic. Dont be selective. Probe everybody that has held public office from 1970 otherwise it will be a witchhunt. And what is this government doing with the recovered funds? What about the Haliburton scandal? Why the deafning silence over it. No Nigerian leader past and present is devoid of looting.The public should hold these unpatrotic leaders to account.

We all know the corruption fight is to the south alone, nothing more.

Recover in South south we hear! How about North n others. N they say some States can not pay salaries by former admin. But now its hell. People are suffering n they are flying from one place to another. Am ashamed of all thes tales. Nothing its working ooo. Economy recession,No Sercurity in the Country, no light, everything is expensive in the Market,no good road anywhere. Its so sad to say you recover this recover that amount. The question is what have you done with the Money recovered?

Anonymous said...

What did you do with all the recovered money? All this money being recovered yet salaries are yet to be paid, nothing is being done, there's still hunger everywhere. Buhari is travelling and laundering the money he's recovering from looters. His wife and daughters are buying million dollars wrist watches and shoes and gallivanting all over the globe with the recovered loot instead of putting it into the economy. Aisha will travel with her daughters, eleven more people, plus her make up woman,her house maid and even her Nanny. And they will tell us that they're fighting "kwarruption" in Buhari's voice. Who are they deceiving?

And then the money goes to the north to buy cowws for salah, and for mass marriage and to buy Brazilian grass for cows , well done Mr efcc and until you guys go after those sacred cows in the north your fight remains witch hunting , and the whole world is watching you.

It is official oh!!! The criminals from the South/South and the intelligent men of integrity from the North. There are now two classes of citizens in Nigeria as we speak. The born rulers and the slaves. You can disagree all you want but that's what is gradually playing out. Sad but true. My dear southern brethren continue to use "gate man" eye dey look Northern, they are taking over.

I have not heard from Pastor Tunde Bakare in a while o. Is he still in Nigeria?

Eze-Udemba Zuma said...

Kobo wise, Naira foolish (penny wise pound foolish). You recovered N1bn from South-south and stoked militancy that has cost Nigeria over N950 trillion. How pragmatic have you been? According to the Bible, not every thing that is lawful is expedient.

Where is the money? Everyday recovery recovery recovery like a broken record. 2016 budget is not implemented because of cash.this end of September. If all the figures being bandied up and down are injected into the budget it will go along way in changing things. Let's hope your recoveries are not being looted to be recovered by another regime. Good luck.

Eleojo Blessing said...

With all these money they r recovering...d country is still facing recession. Where is it going too???

Jamila Shaibu said...

And where is the money?

Anonymous said...

My problem with most Nigerians is their mentality. They like to dance around the problem instead of proffering solutions. Critics talk as If a recession can never happen, and when it happens, it is a quick fix. NEWS FLASH. WE ARE IN A RECESSION AND IT WAS MADE POSSIBLE BY THE GREED OF THE PREVIOUS ADMINISTRATION.
I am neither APC nor PDP. I am just an everyday Nigerian who is tired of people talking in shadows about corruption, and now when someone finally has the guts to face corruption head on, the same people are saying he is one sided. To those who are still ranting about what monies that have been recovered are being used for. Have you heard of the word "APPROPRIATION".
The FG cannot just get up and start spending looted funds. Mind you, some of these funds were allocated to Elephant project that never existed and while some where not allocated at all. The recovered monies were not budgeted for and hence cannot just be spent. There are procedures to be followed. However, I would be right to assume that the present govt is working within it budget arrangement while looted funds recovered are returned to the treasury.

And Dasuki is from where if I may ask?

Seun Combs said...

Is it the federal govt or state govt's that are owing salaries? Don't jst think from your anus, get your facts right and stop defending people that have rendered you hopeless!

Seun Combs said...

EFCC arrested Dasuki from the North, they said it's because he arrested Buhari in the 80's, code of conduct is probing Saraki from the North and the same people said it's because APC don't want him. Nenadi Usman, Bala Mohammed, Bello, Alex Badeh and other Northerners are under probe and many have voluntarily returned money yet, they said it's because they served under PDP and that is why they are being probed.
The Govt is looking for Tompolo and probing others including Patience Jonathan who have looted the resources of the nation and they said it's because they are from the South South and that the Govt does not like anybody from SS.
Nnamdi Kanu from the South East was arrested for threatening the govt and for treason yet, Ihejirika, Olisa Metuh and others are under probe for abuse of abuse and money laundering they said it's because the govt does not like the Igbos.
Chief Falae, Amosu, FFK, Fayose and others are under probe for abuse of office, receiving slush funds etc and yet again, the same people claim it's a witch hunt.
Dear Nigerian youths, the witch cannot hunt you if you have not stolen from its spoils. Reno Omokri and Ben Bruce are from the SS and are critics of the Nigerian govt yet they are walking free because there is nothing to tie them with. Please be wise and stop defending people whose children wash hands with champagne worth millions of naira while most of you can barely have 2 meals per day!
