The Federal Government is working to ensure that the recovered assets benefit all Nigerians through investment in social development programmes and infrastructure.

Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, SAN, made this in a goodwill message at the International Conference on Illicit Financial Flows and Assets Recovery organised by the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) in Abuja.

Malami was represented by Mrs Juliet Ibekaku, the Special Assistant to the President on Justice Reform and International Relations.

“In order to address the challenges of illicit financial flows internationally, there is the need to enhance consensus building and multilateral approach in Africa and beyond.

“There is no doubt, the international and regional cooperation is key in achieving this goal as no one country can do it, therefore, we must all work together.

“This is what the Financial and Accountability, Transparency and Integrity (FACTI) Panel’s report released in February 2021 is telling us.

“How we meet the recommendations of the panel in order to achieve the 2030 Agenda for sustainable Development is a global and regional challenge,” he said.
