Buhari To Demand Recovery Of Looted Funds At UN Assembly by Taeewo(m): 4:23am On Sep 10, 2016
Adelani Adepegba, Abuja

President Muhammadu Buhari will next week lead the Federal Government delegation to New York, the United States, where he will address the 71st regular session of the United Nations General Assembly on September 21, 2016.

The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, who stated this on Friday in Abuja, explained that the President would use the opportunity to build on his relationship with other world leaders and demand the recovery of looted funds stashed away in foreign countries.

According to him, the Federal Government will canvass the election of an Afro-centric UN Secretary-General, who will be pro-developing countries.

He stated that Buhari would also push for the candidature of Nigerians into various international agencies which he said had influence on UN policy and programmes globally.

Onyeama said it was absolutely important that Nigeria engaged in multilateral relations, noting that it had candidates for positions in International Civil Aviation Authority and the United Nations Human Rights Council.

He said the President would also engage the world leaders and seek their support in the areas of security, anti-corruption, governance and the economy where Nigeria is currently facing challenges.

The minister said, “It is an opportunity for the President to push for the reform of the UN, a UN that is more inclusive of more countries. It is another opportunity to engage world leaders and push for recovery of illicit and looted funds, address poverty, refugee issues and irregular migrants; this is an issue that is affecting our relationship with European countries.” Buhari, the minister added, would also sign the Paris Agreement on Climate Change which the United States and China, had earlier signed.

Onyeama added that during the trip, the President would also lead his delegation to the US-Africa Business Forum, where Nigeria would be the focus.

He said, “There will also be a high-level meeting on the humanitarian crisis in the Lake Chad region, the President is keen on addressing the problem of the Lake Chad which would cost $15bn and we would need to mobilize funding for the project.”

Mr.President is just disgracing Nigeria at will.After telling the world & agreeing that Nigerians are fantastically corrupt(though we know it's true),here you're now going shamelessly cap in hand to solicit for stolen funds-Abeg which one is more disgraceful? Don't tell us it will be used to revive the ailing economy as you've bored us with imaginary looted monies that have been recovered already.The world knew who we are by virtue of our president. A lots of looted funds are just handy in the hands of his staunch APC cronies of which he also benefited from same,yet he never deemed it fit to probe these persons despite the overwhelming evidence against them let alone recover the said monies but is more interested in any suspected corruption in the opposition.What about the funds that were looted under your nose as the PTDF chairman? Hope this doesn't include the Abacha's loot as you have long declared that he didn't steal anything right? Corruption nonsense as if that is the one thing that concerns our national life.

It's so shameful that this is what we've got representing d already dead image of Nigeria...

THANK GOD FOR PRESIDENT BUHARI.

There are many issues unattended in the land.
Children are starving
People are attempting suicide
Many people are loosing their job
Most people are lamenting
Majority are regretting
just because of an illiterate's policy.
But all the illiterate could do, is to be going after the cash of his political rivals all in the name of fighting corruption.

What about the trillions he recovered from looted funds..

Mr man, people like you can
THANK GOD FOR SATAN.

Stop chasing stone while loosing diamonds! Work with what you have!

No govt will release looted funds just like that. It will take years and decades of litigation. Eg abacha loot!

We can't wait for that money before work starts

Same here. Not until there are clear evidence to do otherwise.

I will continue to support you my able presido. Not until I see genuine reason/s not to.

I predict wailing and moaning by the corrupt and their supporters on this thread as usual.

Watch out for posts such as: "Ajala travels out again", "when will he visit Nigeria again", "It's only corruption he's fighting while the economy is collapsing", "why can't he send his minister or VP" (to a UN Assembly where other world leaders are present as well oo!) and other childish innuendos.

Their brain is so damaged by the shock of their election loss that they criticize the president for anything and everything even for those that's for their good. Pathetic humans they are!


Keep your mentions coming. You know I'm up to the task. cool cool cool

I think that word "demand" is harsh. They're not under any obligation to repatriate those funds.
It's in areas like this that we miss obj's diplomacy.

Our oil has been used to grow other country's economies oh. The ones that have developed for that matter shege! barawo full everywhere.

I'm sure Buhari is not expecting any tangible reply at least for now, because these countries have to be pushed and pushed again before they can comply.
