The Centre for the Vulnerable and the Underprivileged (CENTREP), has called on the Federal Government to publish the names of looters alongside the amount recovered from them. The Executive Director of the organization, Mr Oghenejabor Ikimi, made the call in a signed press statement made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Tuesday in Warri.
Ikimi said that the publication would not only engender transparency, it would also boost the confidence of the people in the anti-corruption policy of the government. According to the Warri-based lawyer, the publication would also discourage others from indulging in corruption.
“Publishing names of looters side by side the various currencies of monies recovered from them will go a long way to deter other serving public office holders presently engaged in the social vice of looting our public treasury.
