Reacting, SERAP

Reacting, SERAP in a statement today by its deputy director Timothy Adewale
said, “Rather than spending the loot to fund the National Social Safety Net
Program (NAASP), President Buhari should, within the framework of the
1999 Constitution (as amended), create a central recovery account/trust
funds, with oversight mechanisms to ensure repatriated funds are
transparently and accountably spent to invest in tangible projects that
would improve access of those living in poverty to essential public services
such as water, education and health. Distributing N5,000 to household
would neither improve the socio-economic conditions of beneficiaries nor
achieve the enduring value of a more transparent and robust system to
manage recovered loot.”

The organization said, “The return of the Abacha loot is a chance for President
Buhari to commit to the enforcement of the 2016 judgment by Justice
Mohammed Idris, which ordered his government to publish disclose the
spending of recovered loot since 1999 by past and present governments
till date, as well as details of projects on which the funds were spent; and
to vigorously push the National Assembly to pass the Proceeds of Crime
Bill. Buhari should make these happen before the next general elections if
he is to truly demonstrate his oft-repeated commitment to fight grand
corruption.”

The government should source funds elsewhere

The statement read in part: “The government should source funds elsewhere to
continue its NAASP. The authorities should do the right thing with the returned
loot and show Nigerians that they can properly and efficiently invest the funds in
projects that would provide tangible benefits to the victims of corruption who
are the socially and economically vulnerable sectors of the population.
The authorities can use the loot to fund universal healthcare programme and
a tuition assistance programme that would provide post-secondary/university
education scholarships to young Nigerians from poor families and who would
otherwise lack the resources to carry out their studies.
