According to Buhari, his administration plans to dedicate some judges to deal with corruption cases where all those found wanting in their dealings will be prosecuted.
Buhari said, “So we are willing but it’s very difficult under this multi-party democracy system. We are getting the cooperation of countries.
“We are trying to sell the assets wherever we found them and bring the money into the Nigerian treasury. This is all I can say at this stage because we are reorganizing the judiciary.
“We are going to dedicate some judges to deal with corruption cases and try to put forward and prosecute all those that investigations proved that they have question s to answer.
“So that is what I’m telling you that we haven’t given up; we are doing our best and we will recover as much as humanly possible,” he said.
