As the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) continues to retrieve billions of naira in looted funds and properties, Nigerians are left wondering: where does it all go? The lack of transparency in managing these recovered assets has raised concerns about accountability and the effectiveness of the anti-corruption fight.

The EFCC has done commendable work in investigating and prosecuting high-profile corruption cases, but the opaque management of recovered assets undermines the gains made. The public has a right to know how these funds are utilized, and it is essential to ensure that they are not re-looted or mismanaged.

Transparency is crucial in this regard. The government should establish a clear framework for managing recovered assets, including publishing regular reports on their utilization. This would enable Nigerians to track the progress and impact of the anti-corruption efforts.

Moreover, involving civil society organizations and other stakeholders in the management process could bring additional oversight and expertise. This collaborative approach would help ensure that recovered assets are used to benefit the people, not just a select few.

The fight against corruption must be transparent, accountable, and inclusive. Nigerians deserve to know where the looted funds go and how they are utilized. Let us demand transparency and accountability in managing recovered assets, and let us work together to build a corruption-free Nigeria.
