The Chairman, Special Presidential Investigation Panel for Recovery of Public Properties, Okoi Obono-Obla, says the Federal Government has demonstrated resolve to tackle the corruption menace.

Obono-Obla stated this in Lagos on Wednesday at a National Seminar on Promoting Transparency and Accountability in the Recovery of Stolen Assets in Nigeria: Proposals for Reform organised by the Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) in collaboration with Ford Foundation of the United States.

“My appeal to Nigerians is for them to work with the panel. You need to give us information on assets that have been taken out of the country by public officers or using shell companies,” Obono-Obla said.

He also said the panel would not entertain any sacred cow, adding that it had the power not only to investigate public officers but people in the financial sector.
