In his bid to reducing the Federation expenses and improved financial status of the country, The Federal Government of Nigeria is set to recover all property of government still in possession of officials that served in the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan.
Malam Garba Shehu, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, who confirmed this development to journalists on Sunday said the decision is not to disgrace anybody.
“That is precisely the case. Even here at the Presidential Villa, there are cars and other property belonging to the government which is yet to be returned.
“The property belongs to the Nigerian people. We are not trying to humiliate anyone by asking them to return their cars or houses.
“But change has come. That is why we have to do things differently now. Imagine how much Nigeria will save by retrieving and re-using these government properties instead of purchasing new ones for new government officials,” said Garba.
It would be recalled the Mr. President, when elected, promised not to witch-hunt anybody or party but to do all it takes to make the country a better and envious place.
