Abdullahi further stated that in support of President Muhammadu Buhari’s drive in tackling corruption, his administration would ensure zero tolerance to graft by using effectively the Anti-Corruption Units bearing in line with the Corps slogan “Collect Bribe and Die, Compromise and be Kidnapped.”

He reiterated that the President is poised to take the Corps to an enviable height, therefore, personnel should not relent in carrying out their assigned  duties to the fullest especially in the fight against vandalism, illegal bunkering, oil theft and  protection of critical national infrastructure.

Abdullahi reassured the personnel of his commitment to the service of the nation and the growth of the Corps.
