CORRUPTION: Ribadu calls for National Assets Seizure Policy

The pioneer chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Mallam Nuhu Ribadu, has called for a national policy on the recovery of assets from corrupt people to effectively prosecute the anti-corruption war.

Ribadu who wants such a policy to be backed by a strong legal framework, said the seizure of assets is more painful to corrupt people than imprisoning them.

The former EFCC chairman who spoke at a National Stakeholder’s Workshop on Corruption in Abuja, said there must a high level of consultations among the three tiers of government to evolve a comprehensive national strategy to fight corruption.

He said the ongoing anti-corruption campaign was on the right course, because the Buhari Government has demonstrated a strong political will, and allow anti-graft agencies to operate without any form of interference.

Ribadu who said fighting corruption in Nigeria was a thankless job, explained that he is still paying the price for his tenure at EFCC, adding that this was manifested when he mistakenly decided to go into politics.
