The Presidency has said that it will not stop President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration’s war against corruption.
In a statement by the President’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, the Presidency recalled that Nigerians gave their votes in 2015 to Buhari because of his commitment to rooting out corruption as one of the cardinal policies of his election campaign.
It said that not even the strong resistance being put up by the opposition and its calculated actions to thwart the efforts at sanitising the system would force the government to give up on the crusade.
The Presidential spokesman also admitted that so far, the battle to uproot corruption has not been easy as corruption has been fighting back.
He added that the days when corruption reigned indiscriminately were gone for good.
He dismissed rumours that members of the ruling All Progressives Congress were being spared, saying that all are equal before the law.
He praised ordinary citizens for embracing the whistleblower policy by taking extraordinary risks to expose corruption.
