Nigeria elimination of safe havens for stolen assets, funds Nigeria call

Nigeria  elimination of safe havens for stolen assets, funds Nigeria call

Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Amb. Tijjani Bande has called for the elimination of safe havens for stolen assets.

Bande made this known at an ‘Interactive Dialogue for Sustainable Development’ at the Economic and Financial Committee of the UN General Assembly in New York.

He then called for the unconditional return of such assets and funds to their countries of origin.

The Nigerian envoy said, “In this regard, it is important that safe havens that create incentives for the transfer of stolen assets and illicit financial flows abroad are eliminated.

“The return of such assets and funds will certainly aid our ongoing sustainable development efforts.”

He said Nigeria believed that sustainable development required the galvanisation of urgent common efforts, a reinvigorated Global Partnership, and an enabling environment at all levels.

He called for the creation of an appropriate global partnership for development, balanced against the increased emphasis on domestic resource mobilisation.

Bande noted the concerns expressed in the report of the UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, particularly in relation to the slow pace of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) progress in Sub-Sahara Africa.

According to him, however, the Government of Nigeria is fully committed to translating the SDGs into reality, in a balanced and integrated manner.

He added that  “As a show of commitment, the Government of Nigeria has developed a comprehensive multi-layer and multi-cluster national accountability institutional framework for enhanced coordination of SDGs mainstreaming in the country.

“An Inter-Ministerial Committee on the SDGs has also been established and the operational guideline for coordinated engagement of Government intervention programmes has been adopted, at both the national and sub-national levels.

“The Office of the Senior Special Assistant to the President on SDGs has been empowered to ensure horizontal and vertical coherence of SDGs development policies, plans and strategies in the country.

“To fully harness Nigeria’s rich human and material resources and to more effectively engage other stakeholders, a Private Sector Advisory Group and a Donors’ Forum on the SDGs have recently been inaugurated”.
