Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti state has alleged that the President Muhammadu Buhari administration has already sold and resold most of the assets it claimed to have recovered.

The governor challenged the federal government to reveal all the properties it has  recovered from looters since 2015.

Fayose also called for the publishing of names of the owners of these assets before selling them.

The strong critic of the Buhari administration was reacting to a comment credited to the president that recovered assets would be sold and the proceeds paid into federal government treasury.

Buhari made this known as he addressed members of Daura Emirate coalition at his hometown, Daura, Katsina state, on Monday.

Fayose said, “Nigerians want to know how many properties were recovered and who bought the properties. Who authorised the sale? Nigerians want details, not propaganda, because most of these properties have been sold and resold.

“The Federal Government should create a website where all the properties recovered by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission and to whom they were sold will be listed so that by one click, Nigerians will have information.”

The governor, in a statement on Wednesday, said, “How can Nigerians continue to trust the position of the same EFCC that said in April 2016 that the allegation of corruption against the Code of Conduct Tribunal Chairman, Danladi Umar, was mere suspicion and would be difficult to prove in court, but now charged the same CCT chairman to court on the allegation it described as mere suspicion?”
