John Cardinal Onaiyekan, the Catholic Archbishop of Abuja, wants the Federal Government to pardon those involved in money laundering

Onaiyekan made the appeal on Friday, January, 1, in Abuja at the St. Peter and Paul Catholic Church, Nyanya as part of his New Year message for the nation.

According to Vanguard, the Catholic Archbishop, said that the best strategy to ensure the return of the funds would be an agreement with the people involved to have them return what they had stolen.


He said that the ongoing developments had shown that corruption could be eradicated over time, adding that the fight against fraudulent acts must be handled with care.

Onaiyekn said: “The easiest way to get the money back is to convince them to go bring the money back, and then it will be easy. One way to convince people to bring stolen money back is to promise them that they will not be disgraced.”


He also urged the government to swing into proper action in the New Year, for the fulfilment of all its campaign promises.


Meanwhile, the former national security adviser, Sambo Dasuki, and the leader of the separatist group, Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, despite several court orders that say they should be released from detention.
