PRESIDENT Muhammadu Buhari has said it will be impossible for his administration to identify and recover all looted funds of the country.

He also said his administration has not done badly, compared to what it met on ground when he took over power in 2015. The President spoke on a day his Information and Culture Minister, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, said no amount of pressure and hack writing would stop the federal government from releasing more names of looters. President Buhari said the damage done to  Nigeria’s economy in the years of plunder was massive, and that government was doing its best to recover some of the loot, but noted that it was impossible to identify and recover all. The President, who stated this while receiving the Buhari Diaspora Support Organisation, led by Mr Charles Efe Sylvester, in London yesterday, said:  “We will do our best to justify your trust in us, and that confidence won’t be abused. 

“I am happy that people like you are here on your own, defending the country. You have shown courage and sacrifice. I assure you that your confidence in us won’t be abused, we will do our best to justify it.” He noted that Nigeria was gifted with tremendous human and natural resources, but regretted that “failure of some of the leadership we had in the past led to our not being able to capitalize on resources to improve the lot of the people.” Noting that wicked people plundered the country, and kept Nigerians poor, the President added that looking at the condition in which the current administration met the country, without savings and the economy badly vandalized, “we have not done too badly.”
