President Muhammadu Buhari has vowed to strengthen his anti-corruption campaign, noting that his administration would not spare anyone found guilty of corrupt practices.
He also vowed to reinvigorate all anti-corruption agencies in the country such as the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission and the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission.
The President stated this at the opening session of the forty-fifth Annual Accountants Conference and fiftieth Anniversary celebration of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria, with the theme ICAN: Building on a legacy of service.
President Buhari in his address delivered by the Permanent Secretary, Federal Ministry of Finance, Mrs. Anastasia Nwaobia said the lack of prudence, transparency and honesty in the management of public resources has left Nigerians in poverty.
He called on ICAN to assist his administration in reversing the trend by ensuring that the resources of government are duly accounted for with all sense of transparency.
The President noted that with the huge number of resources at the country’s disposal, Nigerians have no business with poverty, adding that his administration has commenced the process of rebuilding a better country for all through the enthronement of honesty in the management of public resources.
