Recovered loot will be used to fund part of #Budget2017 – Presidency


Senior special assistant to the president on prosecutions, Okoi Obono-Obla has said that 20 percent of the 2017 budget will be financed with recovered loot.

The presidential aide made this known on Tuesday while speaking with journalists in Abuja.

He said that the federal government would, however, liaise with the national assembly for permission before the funds would be used.

He, however commended the ruling party, APC, saying that the party would continue to be in power “as long as it continued to serve the interest of Nigerians by delivering true democracy dividends.”
