Buhari welcomes Italian support on Recovering stolen funds

President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday, June 10, in Abuja welcomed the support of the Italian government to help recover and repatriate illegally deposited Nigerian assets in foreign countries.

It’s reported that a senior special assistant to the president on media and publicity, Garba Shehu, said Buhari spoke when he received a delegation from the Italian parliament led by Senator Vito Petrocelli, chairman Senate committee on foreign affairs at State House.

It was gathered that the Italian Ambassador to Nigeria, Dr Stefano Pontesilli, who accompanied the delegation, while conveying the message of the Italian government had told the Nigerian leader: ‘‘We are willing to cooperate with your administration 100 per cent on illicit assets repatriation.’’

Responding, President Buhari commended the Italian government for demonstrating open-mindedness and willingness to cooperate with Nigeria on the issue of repatriation of stolen funds.

The president while acknowledging the good wishes of the Italian government in the aftermath of the February 23 presidential election, told the delegation that his second term in office would consolidate on the progress recorded in the last four years in the country.

He also used the occasion to remind developed countries to do the needful on reviving Lake Chad.

‘‘Lake Chad is now 10 per cent of what it used to be. At least 30 million people around it benefit from fishing, farming and animal husbandry.

‘‘The drying up of Lake Chad has forced some people to defy the Sahara desert and the Mediterranean in their bid to get to Europe,’’ he said.

Buhari thanked the Italian government for its policy of accommodating displaced persons, particularly African refugees.

The president also appreciated the Italian delegation for emphasizing the cordial relationship between Nigeria and Italy and the need to establish a ‘‘bilateral committee on friendship’’ that would identify areas of cooperation and work collectively.

Earlier, Senator Petrocelli had told President Buhari that the delegation, which included Senator Tony Chike Iwobi, vice chairman, Senate committee on foreign affairs, a Nigerian and first African to be elected into the Italian parliament, was in the country to attend to the June 12 Democracy Day celebrations.

He also congratulated the Nigerian leader on his re-election.
