ICPC To Manage Assets Forfeited To The Government

The Chairman of the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission, Prof. Bolaji Owasanoye (SAN), on Monday, inaugurated a 14-man Asset Disposal Committee to manage assets forfeited to the Federal Government.

Speaking at the ceremony, which was held at the ICPC Headquarters in Abuja, Owasanoye noted that, “To put sanity and clarity in the entire process, one of the things POCA mandated is the creation, in every agency, of a department to manage recovered assets.”

He maintained, “By law, all the agencies that recover must have a department to manage assets. For example, if a perishable item is recovered, the agency has the power to dispose of it immediately.”

He added, “To push for some transparency, the Commission decided to invite some external stakeholders from the media, workers, and civil society. For the external people, the intention is that the same institution will substitute someone else every year, the whole idea is that people should not become institutional.”
