FG borrowed from recovered loot, will pay back 2022: Nigerian Minister

Minister of Finance Zainab Ahmed appeared before the House of Representatives ad hoc committee investigating the assessment and status of recovered loot. 



The chairman of the committee, Adeogun Adejoro, said that it was necessary for the committee to know the amount of recovered loot and where it was being kept.

Ms Ahmed told the committee that she had no idea of the number of accounts being used to keep the recovered loot.

She, however, said that the ministry had a record of what had been recovered and the amount that had come into the account.

She stated that N50 billion was provided from recovered loot to fund the 2020 budget, adding that there were two types of recovery accounts – interim forfeiture and final forfeiture accounts.

She said that in the case of interim forfeiture, the investigation had not been concluded, adding that such money could not be touched by the federal government.

She added that until investigations were concluded, the money could not be utilised.

She said that the government borrowed from recovered loot to fund its operations, adding that the unusual circumstances the country found herself had made it difficult to pay back the loan.

Ms Ahmed, however, said that the government was hoping to pay back in the 2022 budget.
