—We need God’s Guidance to fight corruption in Nigeria, Buhari Says
YBTC News—President Muhammadu Buhari says fighting corruption needs God’s guidance and prayers as he pledged to redouble his administration’s efforts toward promoting peace and prosperity, and to fight corruption to a standstill.
The president made the pledge when he met with members of Jigawa State Council of Traditional Rulers at the government house, Dutse.
Buhari, who spoke in Hausa language, said his first attempt to fight corruption when he was Head of State was unsuccessful because corruption fought back and he ended in jail for over three years.
He, however, stated that as a civilian president he had studied the system and hence the ongoing crusade against corruption would continue to yield fruitful results as property and monies recovered from looters would be deposited into the nation’s treasury.
“When I was fighting corruption as head of state, they said I was in a hurry to wipe out corruption in the society, and I ended up in jail for over three years.
“Now, that due process is being followed in the fight against corruption they are complaining that I’m too slow.
“Before, they said I was in a haste, now they are saying I’m slow – even calling me “Baba Go Slow’’.
“You can see, governing Nigeria needs God’s guidance and payers.
“Let me assure that I will not relent in the fight against corruption and I want to use this opportunity to thank you for your continuous prayers,’’ he said.
