CISLAC: Buhari’s Government Lacks Transparency In Corruption Fight, Asset Recovery


By Olivia Isibor (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – The administration of President Muhammadu Buhari has been accused of lacking transparency in its anti-corruption efforts.

This was the view of a non-governmental organisation, Civil Society Legislative Advocacy Centre (CISLAC), which also doubles as the national contact of Transparency International in Nigeria.

Disclosing this at a press conference in Abuja on Tuesday, CISLAC via a statement by its Executive Director, Auwal Rafsanjani, noted that President Buhari’s government has nothing to show for its war against corruption six years after it came to power, calling on the National Assembly to enact a legal framework for the management of recovered stolen assets.

The organisation further noted that although President Buhari promised Nigerians to fight corruption, he has however not shown much commitment to deliver on his promises, adding that money recovered by President Buhari’s administration is being looted by politicians under the current administration. While accusing the judiciary of complicity, consequent to wide scale corruption within its ranks, CISLAC called on the Federal Government to account for the billions of dollars that have been recovered from corruption proceeds from former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s administration till date
