Malami Seeks Recovered Loot To Finance Ministry’s Operations

It has been reported that the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN), has stated that his ministry was making efforts to ensure that “we are allocated some cost of collection from recovered funds to finance our recovery operations.”

According to reports, Malami reportedly stated this at the House of Representatives Committee on Justice, where he went to defend his ministry’s 2022 budget.

According to him, “To date, there are large sums of illicit money stashed abroad for which we are working at close quarters with ICPC and EFCC as dependable allies to effect recovery.”

Meanwhile, the Chairman of the committee, Ugonna Ozurigbo, reportedly noted that the business of government cannot be run in a vacuum and that budget approval is critical to good governance, adding that, “this exercise should be given the necessary importance that it deserves as we solicit your maximum cooperation and total disclosure of all material facts.”
