The minister said this today when he appeared on a News Agency of Nigeria Forum in Abuja. According to him, the amount of money recovered is always being made public.
He said, “What we have recovered and if my record is right is about N78 billion, and 3 million dollars. We have been able to block various accounts in which about 9 billion dollar is found but those are not money available to us because we are still in court over them. Continue...
“The government spends N165 billion every month to pay federal civil servants, even what has been so far recovered will not even pay 50 per cent of the salaries in a month.’’
Mohammed assured Nigerians that every penny recovered will be judiciously spent and nobody could re-loot what had been recovered under the administration.
The minister further explained that Nigerians should understand that what had been recovered was so little compared to what the people needed on a continuous basis
