Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari has reiterated that his war against corruption in the country won’t be compromised regardless of any pressure that may arise.
He gave this statement through his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina at the Presidential Villa in Abuja on Monday, when he received a group of Nigerians who backed his Anti-corruption Campaign and promised them that the full wrath of the law would soon take center stage. He revealed that all persons charged with stealing the nation’s resources will have their day in court and that, upon conviction, their ill-gotten wealth would be seized and returned to government coffers.
“I believe it is time for Nigeria to change course. That is why I sought election as President and got elected. As President, I am determined that Nigeria must move away from a course of endemic corruption that was leading us to perdition,” Buhari said.
“There can be no question of our willfully allowing anyone to get away with corruption. No matter the pressure and entreaties, the anti-corruption war will continue and all accused persons will have their day in court,” the president added.
