Members of the House of Representatives are to question former President Olusegun Obasanjo and former President Goodluck Jonathan over the recovery of money stolen by a former military Head of State, the late Gen. Sani Abacha. An 11-member panel of the House constituted to investigate the recovery is set to start work this week.
Findings indicated that the panel, which is chaired by a former Chairman, House Committee on Appropriation, Mr Abdulmumin Jibrin, would visit Obasanjo and Jonathan in their homes to question them over their role in the recovery. The visit is to be a deviation from the usual practice of issuing summons to persons to appear before National Assembly committees in a bid to accord the two former leaders due respect.
However, the committee will summon the Minister of Finance, Mrs Kemi Adeosun; the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mr Abubakar Malami; Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria, Mr Godwin Emefiele; and a former Minister of Finance, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala. Better known as ‘Abacha loot,’ it is unclear how much exactly successive administrations after Abacha recovered for Nigeria from foreign countries and other locations where the stolen money was stashed.
