Corrupt Nigerians are fighting my government says Buhari

17 November 2016, 15:02

Abuja - President Muhammadu Buhari has told the US Secretary of State, Mr. John Kerry, that the anti-corruption crusade of his administration has been made tougher by the vigorous fightback by corrupt people in the country. He, however, assured that the battle would be won.

This was made known in a State House Statement issued on Thursday. Signed by Femi Adesina, Presidential Adviser on Media and Publicity.

The statement said President Buhari and Kerry spoke on Wednesday, on the margins of the conference on climate change, COP22, in Marrakech, Morocco.

President Buhari said corrupt people have accumulated a vast arsenal of illicit wealth, which they are deploying against the government on various fronts.
