Civil Resource Development and Documentation Centre, has asked the Federal Government not to allow the recovered $322.5m Abacha loot to be diverted by corrupt public officials.
It was stated during an event tagged ‘The Monitoring of Recovered Assets in Nigeria Through Transparency and Accountability Project’ organised by the group in Amawbia, Anambra State, by the Project Advisor of CIRDDOC, Chief Ralph Ndigwe.
He also commended the Federal Government and the international community for helping the country to recover looted funds.
He said the CIRDDOC would train monitors in six local government areas in Anambra State to assist the body in its activities.
He regretted that Anambra is the only state in the South-East that had enrolled for the programme.
Anambra State Coordinator of the National Cash Transfer Office, Mr Ralph Enukora, complained that the members of staff of the organisation had been attacked following the removal of the names of persons who were wrongly included in the programme.
He said, “Some people have been targeted wrongly, and their names enrolled for the programme, and they disguised as poor people to collect money, even though they are known to have means of livelihood.
