FG Seals Deals With U.S On $500m Abacha, Alameiyesegha Loot

‎The Federal Government says it has struck deals that will lead to the repatriation of about $481 million stashed in United States’ banks.
According to Presidential spokesman, Mallam Garba Shehu, judgement has been won on the repatriation of $480 million Abacha loot, just as the Federal Government has already provided a dedicated‎ account into which “the return of one million Dollars from (ex-Bayelsa governor, late Diepreye) Alamisiegha,” will be paid.
Shehu, was reacting to allegations that President Muhammadu Buhari donated $500m to the Hillary Clinton Presidential bid for the November 8 election, following which Donald Trump, the Republican candidate and eventual winner is angry.
He described the allegation as the craziest against the President, he expressed sadness that Nigerians are believing it.
In a series of tweet on his twitter handle, Shehu said President Buhari’s Nigeria does not have this kind of money to throw around, just as he is “concluding agreements with the U.S. to return our stolen money in their banks.”
‎On the General Sani Abacha loot, the Presidential spokesman said the Attorney-General, Shehu Malami, will be in the US next week to speak to the Department of Justice (USDOJ) on the next steps for the return of that as well.
‎”The U.S is paying to Nigeria, not the other way round,” he stressed further and that even if the money is there the “President is the least likely person to give it as donation.”
