President Mohammadu Buhari, has confirmed that on May 29, 2016 (Democracy day) he will reveal the names of those who looted Nigeria’s funds.
Buhari, who is in London for the Anti corruption summit, told journalists that those found wanting will definitely be punished.
The president said:
So far, what has come out, what has been recovered in whatever currency from each ministries, departments and individuals.
I intend on the 29th to speak on this because all Nigerians are getting from the mass media because of the number of people arrested either by the EFCC, DSS. But we want to make a comprehensive report on the 29th.
President Buhari, also confirmed that the names of those mentioned will be published. He said:
Yes, eventually, it has to be done because we want to successfully prosecute them. But you know you cannot go to the courts unless you have documents for prosecution.
People signed for these monies into their personal accounts, their banks gave statements that the money is there, when it came, how much and so on.
Buhari also spoke on selective prosecution, as its been rumored that this might come into play. He said:
That is an accusation against the law enforcement agencies. But I assure you that we do not interfere. Try and get those who are now under arrest, you will find out it is across the board.
