The Punch - - NEWS - Ade­lani Ade­pegba, Abuja

THe Anti-cor­rup­tion and Re­search-based Data Ini­tia­tive has called on the Min­is­ter of Jus­tice and At­tor­ney­gen­eral of the Fed­er­a­tion, Abubakar Malami (SAN), to, as a mat­ter of ur­gency, en­sure the co­or­di­na­tion of the pas­sage of the Pro­ceed of Crime Bill.

This, the group said, would re­sult in the es­tab­lish­ment of the Pro­ceed of Crime Re­cov­ery and Man­age­ment Agency and en­sure trans­parency and ac­count­abil­ity in the man­age­ment of all re­cov­ered as­sets by the gov­ern­ment.

ARDI ex­ec­u­tive Sec­re­tary, Chief Den­nis Aghanya, stated this in a state­ment in Abuja on Wednesday.

The ac­tivist stated, “In­stead of work­ing on an en­tirely new bill, the un-as­sented ver­sion passed by the eighth Assem­bly should be up­dated based on the ob­ser­va­tions of Mr Pres­i­dent, Muham­madu Buhari.”
