With the execution of these instruments, Nigeria’s trade relations with Singapore and income therefrom are expected to rise, while the return of illegal assets will not only boost the administration’s anti-corruption drive, but also provide additional funds for critical infrastructure.

The Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina disclosed this in Abuja on Monday.
