President Muhammadu Buhari (PMB) has assured Nigerians that no matter the amount of pressure, he will not give up the war against corruption in the country.
Speaking to a group of Nigerians, who marched to the Presidential Villa, Abuja on Monday, to pledge their full support for his administration’s anti-corruption campaign, Buhari who was represented by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, promised not to stop the war against corruption.
“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.
“There can be no question of our wilfully 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 said.
He welcomed the support of the group known as Nigerians March Against Corruption, while also reaffirming his commitment to curbing insecurity in the country and boosting employment opportunities for Nigerians, especially the youths.
The group, led by Aisha Yesufu had condemned recent statements by some individuals against the president’s anti-corruption campaign. It assured Buhari that the vast majority of ordinary Nigerians fully supported his ongoing efforts to curb corruption.
