PRESIDENT Muhammadu Buhari’s anti-graft stance and plans to recover stolen funds have earned the backing of African Union (AU)/United Nations Economic Commission for Africa’s (UNECA) High-Level Panel on Illicit Financial Flows (IFFs).
Former South African President Thabo Mbeki, who heads the panel, gave the.....backing while answering a question from The Nation at a news conference after the “First Subregional Workshop on Curbing IFFs” in Nairobi, Kenya.
Mbeki, who noted that he had not closely followed what Buhari’s administration was doing, said the body would support the Federal Government’s plans to recover stolen assets.
He added that the Federal Government’s plan would encourage other African governments, if it succeeds.
