Politics Dabiri-Erewa Faults US Govt For Refusing to Return Nigeria's Recovered Funds



President Muhammadu Buhari's Senior Special Assistant on Foreign Affairs and Diaspora, Abike Dabiri-Erewa has called for the United States to return Nigeria's looted funds unconditionally.

Speaking on Thursday at a media event in Abuja on Thursday, she said those who keep stolen funds are as guilty as those who looted them.

"The person who steals is a crimal; the person who keeps known stolen funds is also a criminal," she said.

"You can't give us aid of one billion dollars and keep one billion dollars of funds you have recovered from Nigeria."

She said America has over $400m that have been officially recovered as stolen funds from Nigeria but keeping them. "..they are telling us about techincalities; they are saying we recovered doesn't mean we can return."

She promised to work with the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruptions to ensure the funds are returned.
