'No sacred cows in fight against corruption'

18 August 2015, 10:03Okoro Chinedu

Lagos – The administration of President Muhammadu Buhari will leave no stone unturned in prosecuting culprits engaged in corruption, Presidential spokesperson, Femi Adesina, has assured.

“There can be no question of our willfully allowing anyone to get away with corruption,” Adesina said in Abuja when representing his principal at an event.

He was addressing a group of Nigerians who marched to the Presidential Villa to pledge their full support for Buhari on his anti-corruption campaign.

“No matter the pressure and entreaties, the anti-corruption war will continue and all accused persons will have their day in court,” said Adesina.

Adesina said the President said all persons charged with stealing the nation’s resources would have their day in court and that, upon conviction, their alleged ill-gotten wealth would be seized and returned to government coffers.

“I believe it is time for Nigeria to change course. That is why I sought election as President and got elected. As President, I am determined that Nigeria must move away from a course of endemic corruption that was leading us to perdition,” said Adesina.

Meanwhile, the Nigerians Against Corruption group, led by Aisha Yesufu, had condemned recent statements by some individuals against the ongoing anti-corruption campaign.

They assured the administration the majority of ordinary Nigerians fully supported Buhari’s ongoing efforts to curb corruption and urged him not to be deterred.
