The Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Benjamin Okezie Kalu, has stressed the need for the country to use recovered public funds to boost the economy and create employment.

A statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Levinus Nwabughiogu, Kalu says the deputy speaker made this known while declaring open the inaugural session of the House ad-hoc committee on, “Identification and Recovery of Public Funds Seized, Forfeited and Abandoned in Financial Institutions and Government Agencies to Improve the Current Economic Challenges in Nigeria,” chaired by Munachim Alozie on behalf of the Speaker of the House, Tajudeen Abbas.

He says “Our mission is unequivocal: to craft a comprehensive strategy that identifies, recovers, and channels idle funds into productive endeavors.

“These dormant resources possess the potential to reinvigorate our struggling economy, creating avenues for growth, development, and prosperity that resonate with every Nigerian. Our economic landscape is multi-dimensional, replete with challenges ranging from dwindling revenues and infrastructure gaps to unemployment and inflation.

“As we embark on our mandate, let us bear in mind that our decisions will echo across the lives of fellow citizens, especially those most affected by these adversities.

“Our unwavering dedication to transparency, accountability, and diligence is non-negotiable as we navigate through intricate financial systems, legal intricacies, and bureaucratic entanglements.”

He further states that collaboration among financial institutions, government bodies, legal entities, and the private sector was a necessary compass towards realizing the objectives, stressing that the committee had the task of optimizing the real-time value of recovered public funds to reinvigorate our economy.

“Additionally, this Ad-Hoc Committee’s role is not only paramount but transformative in three aspects: first, ensuring accountability and transparency; second, establishing trust between the government and its
people; and third, optimizing the real-time value of recovered public funds to reinvigorate our economy, thereby preventing dead capital,’ he said.
