President Muhammadu Buhari has reiterated his administration’s determination to recover all stolen funds and prosecute offenders appropriately. ‎
The president said his administration was resolute in its commitment to curbing corruption, plugging all loopholes in public sector accounting and deploying available resources for the good of all Nigerians.
Addressing members of the Nigerian community in India yesterday, President Buhari said that he expected the ongoing recoveries and prosecutions to serve as deterrent to others who nurse the ambition of seeking public office solely for illegal personal gains.
President Buhari assured the gathering that his administration fully recognised the devastating consequences of the illegal diversion of public resources meant for national development into private bank accounts, and was doing all within its
powers to stop such diversions.
“The anti-corruption campaign will be on-going for many years. We are committed to the enthronement of good governance that plugs the loopholes in public sector accounting, and the use of scarce resources for public good.
“We are determined to demonstrate exemplary leadership that will make our citizens to change their ways in a manner that lays
a solid foundation for reconstruction and development.
“I am confident that our approach to fighting corruption through value re-orientation, improved internal processes and systems and the rule of law, as well as enhancing the capacity of the various anti-corruption agencies and institutions will prove more enduring in addressing this evil.
“In the meantime, we will continue to prosecute those who have been indicted for corrupt practices and ensure that stolen funds are recovered, to serve as deterrence to others who nurse the ambition of seeking public office solely for illegal personal gain,” President Buhari said.
