With six days left to the February 16th general elections, President Muhammadu Buhari has said that the decision to continue to tackle the country’s corruption crisis the way his administration has done in the last four years lies with Nigerians.
In an address to Nigerians titled: Corruption Threatens Nigeria and its Elections, the President, who is running for reelection as the candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC), made the case for fighting graft as the base on which to secure the country, build the economy, provide decent infrastructure and educate Nigeria’s next generation.
“There is no doubt that this Administration has changed the way we tackle corruption. The choice before voters is this: Do we continue forward on this testing path against corruption? Or do revert to the past, resigned to the falsehood that it is just the-way-things-are-done? Or that it is just too difficult – too pervasive – to fix? I know which one I would choose. It is why I am asking Nigerians for another four years to serve them,” Mr Buhari stated.
