President Buhari on Monday reassured Nigerians that no amount of pressure would make him give up the war against corruption in the country.
Addressing a group of Nigerians who marched to the Presidential Villa to pledge their full support for his administration’s anti-corruption campaign, the President promised not to relent on this fight against anti-corruption.
This was made known via Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, as he quoted the president saying;
“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 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.”
Welcoming the support of the group Nigerians March Against Corruption, President Buhari, who was represented by Mr. Adesina, also reaffirmed his commitment to curbing insecurity in the country and boosting employment opportunities for Nigerians, especially the youth.
He called for the continued support and solidarity of Nigerians as the present administration works to correct the wrongs of the past.
However, the president recently accepted the request from the Comptroller General of the Nigerian Customs Service, Abullahi Dikko Inde, as he sought to resign from his duty post.
