President Muhammadu Buhari has come out to say that the democratic process is slowing down his government’s fight against corruption.
This was his response when he was asked to compare his time as Military Head of State to him being a democratically elected President.
According to Buhari, he does not appreciate how sluggish the system is even he knows that he has to abide by the rules.
He added that it is sadder because it is a system that is supposed to be accountable.
His words, “When I came in uniform, I collected those who were leading, took them to Kirikiri (Prison) and told them they were guilty until they could prove themselves innocent.
“I put, based on almost all the geopolitical zones, committees to investigate them.
“Those that were found to have lived beyond their means, the balance was taken and given to the states.
“But I myself was arrested, detained and they were given back what they had stolen.
“So, this system, which is supposed to be more accountable, is too slow for my liking, but I have to follow it.”
