  • Group Hails Chief Victor Uwajeh's Appointment As Loot Recovery Consultant
  •  An Abuja-based civil society organisation has lauded the federal government’s appointment of Victor Uwajeh as consultant for the tracing and recovery of looted funds. 

    The group, Global Integrity Crusade Network (GICN) said the appointment Uwajeh to trace and recover undeclared assets as well as funds looted from government coffers goes to show that President Muhammadu Buhari, GCR is indeed resolute in his resolve to kill corruption before corruption kills Nigeria.

    The Federal government had appointed Uwajeh, a London based Nigerian private investigatoras consultant to the Special Investigation Panel on the Recovery of Public Property chaired by the Special Assistant to the President on Prosecutions, Chief Okoi Obono-Obla.

    Several political commentators have since taken to social media to criticise the appointment. 

    However, GICN in a statement signed by its president Barrister Edward Omaga stated,  "the record we have of Evangelist Uwajeh depicts him as one of the finest Private Investigator around, having been trained at the Redding University, United Kingdom. 

    "He was awarded the Degree of Associate of Science in Criminal Investigations and Economic Crimes in the year 2007 before being inducted to practice as Private Investigator/Consultant by the Institute of Private Investigation, United Kingdom. In the past, Evangelist Uwajeh had brought his wealth of experience to bear in Nigeria when he was engaged by successive administrations to unravel numerous economic crimes involving high profile personalities and agencies."

    The group said "it is no longer strange that when you fight corruption, corruption surely fights back. President Buhari must beware of some disgruntled politicians who are trying use the media to paint Evangelist Uwajeh in bad light within this period just to settle personal scores. 

    "Uwajeh has worked as a consultant to the Senate Committee on Anti-Corruption and Finacial Crimes, Private investigator to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), consultant to the EFCC, Special Assistant to Chairman Senate Committee on Drugs, Narcotics, Financial Crimes and Anti-Corruption, among others."
