President Buhari yesterday told members of the United Nations to return stolen funds and assets that are stashed in their countries. He made the call while speaking at a session in the ongoing UN General Assembly currently holding in New York.
"Illicit financial assets harbored abroad deprive developing countries including Nigeria the enjoyment of their national wealth and resources required for development. This is why Nigeria calls on the United Nations to remain vocal and active in addressing the negative impact of non-repatriation of illicit financial assets. As soon as stolen assets are legally established, they should swiftly be repatriated"he said.
