President Muhammadu Buhari has said that his administration’s determination to wrestle corruption to the ground remains unshaken.
The President, who gave the assurance in his New Year message to Nigerians, however, said the fight against corruption would be guided by respect for the rule of law and due process.
He vowed that his administration would not spare anybody or organ of government in the ongoing crusade against corrupt practices.
“It is a collective undertaking and resolve that must be seen to its logical conclusion in spite of certain distractions.
“The fate of our country lies partly in the success of this campaign.
“It will be unthinkable on my part to allow the boat of this crucial campaign promise capsise mid-stream,’’ he added.
On the economy, President Buhari said his administration had focused its energies to turn around the economy, create jobs, fight corruption, and transform agriculture to replace oil and gas as a major revenue earner for the nation.
“I am encouraged that we are getting things right.’’
According to him, agricultural revolution has begun and farmers in different parts of the country are experiencing bumper harvests while states are getting into strategic partnership towards attaining self-sufficiency in rice.
