Falana On Abacha Loot: Nigerian Government Refuses To Account For $4 Billion by RuudVanNisteroy: 7:27pm On Feb 22
Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Femi Falana, has accused the Nigerian Government of failing to account for the $4bn recovered from late Head of State, Gen. Sani Abacha.

Falana also said that since 1999, the government had recovered about $4bn of public funds stolen by Abacha but that Nigerians were not aware of how the fund was expended by the government.

Falana, who spoke at the Anti-Corruption Situation Room conference organised by Human and Environmental Development Agenda, which focused on reviewing efforts of state and non-state actors in the fight against corruption in Nigeria.

Falana said it was lack of accountability by the Nigerian Government that prompted the cautionary insult of a United States Department of State official, who mocked Nigerian leaders, asking them to ensure accountability in the disbursement of the latest over $308m warehoused in the Island of Jersey but recently released to Nigeria.

“About $4bn recovered Abacha loot is yet to be accounted for.

"One young state house official told Buhari government officials that the money must not be stolen.

"It is the most successful recovery of stolen public funds in the world. We have not been able to account for the money,” Falana said, lamenting that a former President said he recovered $2bn in eight years but when he was asked to account for the funds after a court order, he said the “judge was foolish”.

Falana said Nigerians had been battling public officials to make open the assets declared, noting that declaration was from the Latin word declare, which means to ‘declare open’.

He said the Code of Conduct Bureau should be told the secrets surrounding asset declaration in Nigeria is illegal.

An official of Transparency International, Mr Anwal Musa Rafsanjani, said the TI report is not about corruption by the Nigerian Government but rather focuses on perception and the corruption trends in the country.

Just earlier this week, I was curious to know where and how all looted monies recovered from politicians have been spent.

I searched Google from A-Z, not until Google advised me to try another search engine maybe it can help.

Infact, the last money Goodluck recovered from Haliburton wasn't accounted for.

I think the Government needs to start showing transparency. It's our money and we should know how it's being utilized

Mr Falana, do you know what is called ‘sundry’ and ‘miscellaneous’ in Nigeria’s public offices? It means, money that is spent on various or undisclosed activities.

Within that context, you can buy a personal house, send your kids abroad, live a good life and stuff enough in your bank accounts for the future, all with government money.

The $4bn recovered from looters was long gone, even before it came to Nigeria. Now, how do you expect the government explain that to Nigerians?

OBJ, Yar’adua, GEJ and Buhari are all part of the corrupt empire called 'Nigerian government' and they have all disbursed the funds accordingly, it’s left to their supporters on Nairaland and other social media to fight over who got what and who has more integrity than the other.

That's why I like APC. While PDP shared theirs among few, APC shared theirs with the poorest Nigerians which you benefitted from.

This cowardly attitude of yours is not new but it's getting worse. Is it a reflection of your real life?

In the other thread, you asked okolie to let sleeping dogs lie rather than sue Hannan buhari. Imagine even referring to a member of the first family whom you were paid to defend a dog.

I think life dealt you a serious one recently and crushed whats left of your balls? Ouch! grin
