President Muhammadu Buhari says the anti-corruption war is tough and grueling, with corruption fighting vigorously back, but assured that the battle would be won.
According to a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina,while meeting with American Secretary of State, John Kerry, Wednesday, on the margins of conference on climate change, COP22, in Marrakech, Morocco, President Buhari said corrupt people had accumulated a formidable arsenal of illicit wealth, which they were now deploying against the government on diverse fronts.
“But it is a war we are determined to win, and which we will win,” President Buhari said. “People of goodwill are behind us, countries like America and many others are with us, and we will surely win.”
The President said Nigeria was happy with American support on different fronts, assuring that the economic challenges facing the country were being “frontally tackled, and we will overcome them soon.”
