@Atiku just returned to Nigeria and @MBujari sent a team of Army, Police, Custom & Immigration officers to surround then search his plane. What were they hoping to find? What is Buhari afraid of? Why this harassment? If Buhari performed would he be afraid of losing? #RenosDarts
Why did @MBuhari order such a large military force to surround and search the plane of @Atiku, the Presidential candidate of the @OfficialPDPNig? Was he hoping that they’d find his non existing @WAECNigeria certificate? Our security should face Boko Haram not Atiku #RenosDarts
President Muhammadu Buhari has advocated for more than jail terms for people who loot their nation’s wealth, noting that full asset recovery will serve as a more effective deterrence.
The president said this while addressing world leaders at the first edition of the Paris Peace Forum in France on Sunday, November 11, 2018.
He called for a harder crackdown on perpetrators of illicit financial flows to discourage more public officials from mismanaging their nation’s resources to the detriment of poor and vulnerable populace.
During his statement on “Illicit Financial Flows (Iffs) and Corruption: The Challenge of Global Governance”, he said the threat of jail terms is not strong enough to deter perpetrators.
He said a more effective punishment would be to fully recover the profits and assets generated from illicit financial flows and corruption.
