I will continue to arrest corrupt Nigerians – Buhari

Published

on

President Mu­hammadu Buhari has vowed to continue to arrest and prose­cute corrupt Nigerians to sal­vage the economy.
Buhari spoke at the State House, Abuja, when he re­ceived the Letter of Credence of the new United States (US) Ambassador to Nigeria, Mr. William Stuart Symington.
The President said the se­curity situation in the North East had improved significant­ly following support in train­ing of the military and supply of hardware after the G-7 meet­ing in Germany in 2015.
“When I was invited to the G-7 meeting after my in­auguration on May 29, 2015, I thought I was going to be an observer at the meeting. But, without prompting, I was asked to brief the leaders on the secu­rity situation in Nigeria, and I did.
“Since then, we have re­ceived support in training and military hardware, and I hope we have not disappointed”, he recalled.
The President noted that the target of reversing the “culture of corruption” in the country had received support from Nigerians, with many realising the depth of damage done by some previous admin­istrations from the ongoing in­vestigations and prosecutions.
Buhari told the ambassa­dor that his administration was still determined to con­tinue investigations and pros­ecution of corrupt persons in the country as “Nigeria will either kill corruption or cor­ruption will kill Nigeria in the long run.”
In his remarks, Symington said that his country’s interest in the wellbeing of Nigeria was of mutual benefit, adding that “we do it not only for Nigeria, but for ourselves. We did it because it was right for us and right for our people.”
President Buhari also re­ceived a Letter of Credence from the Ambassador of the Kingdom of Morocco, Mr. Moha Ouali Tagma.
