The CSO report on asset recovery in Nigeria is a beautiful document. Authored by ANEEJ & SERAP, the 32-page document chronicles Nigeria’s efforts at stolen asset recovery. It analysed the strengths, weaknesses and opportunities inherent in the asset recovery drive and at the end the document proffered certain recommendations which may likely establish an enduring framework for asset recovery in Nigeria if implemented.

As a document owned by the CSO Community (it was signed by the nine NGOs which represented the Civil Society in Nigeria), there was no other place for which this document had to be presented to government other than the inaugural Global Forum for Asset Recovery taking place in Washington DC, 4-6 December.

ANEEJ executive director, the Rev David Ugolor in presenting the Report to Mrs Juliet Ibekaku-Nwagu said the CSOs in Nigeria are hopeful that the recommendations in the report will help government to strengthen the campaign for an enduring asset recovery framework in Nigeria.
