President Muhammadu Buhari says he will carefully work with the judiciary and the international community in the recovery of looted funds to ensure that all monies stolen by the past administration are fully recovered.

The President spoke on Monday at a lunch time with State House correspondents to mark his one year in office.

President Buhari described his experience in the villa during the hand over, as different from what he envisaged, maintaining that his administration did not meet any money on ground.

He was, however, optimistic that the promises on security, fight against corruption and revamping the economy would be fulfilled.

It is the second time that President Buhari will be meeting with State House correspondents in Aso Rock.

At the meeting, he shared his experience before he was announced winner of the 2015 Presidential election, saying he will not forget that phone call from former President Goodluck Jonathan in a hurry.

The former President had called Mr Buhari to congratulate him on his victory in the election before the final result was announced by the electoral body.

He, however, said that his experience in the last one year was different from what he thought.

It is an experience that nearly affected the change mantra that dominated his campaigns.

On the $2.1 billion meant for security but was allegedly looted and efforts to recover looted funds, the President said security, fight against corruption and revamping the economy still remained the tripod on which his administration stood and the main focus that could not be derailed.
