The House of Representatives Committee on Public Assets, led by Chairman Ademorin Kuye, has pledged to initiate efforts to retrieve national assets procured through fraudulent means. This declaration came during a one-day retreat in Abuja organized by the committee, focusing on the theme “Guardian of Public Trust: Transforming Public Assets Oversight and Legislation.”
In response to queries during the retreat, Chairman Kuye affirmed their determination, stating, “As the chairman of this committee, I am ready to step on toes. We are determined to recover any national asset in the hands of powerful forces acquired fraudulently. Even the ones that were concessioned, we will make sure that they are properly managed in line with the provisions of the law. We have the backing of Mr. President and the National Assembly to do this.”
