President of the federal republic of Nigeria, General Muhammadu Buhari Rtd. has
promised that he will ensure that there is more responsible and accountable
governance at all levels of government in the country.
This was made known in Buhari’s keynote speech at the 1st Adamawa State Anti-
Corruption Summit in Yola.
The President said he was proud that his administration had not relented in fighting
corruption in line with his promise to the nation during his inauguration in 2015.
Buhari said, “You may recall that on May 29, 2015, when I stated that we are faced
with enormous challenges in this Country, with insecurity and institutionalised
pervasive corruption being key and that my confidence remained high that together
we will tackle them head on.
“As I had predicted, today I am proud to note that we have not relented in our
determination to fight corruption. We are fixing our problems together.
“Even though under our system the Federal Government cannot directly interfere in
the details of the operations of states, but to see that the gross corruption at the local
level is being checked and transparently reported is a thing of satisfaction and joy for
“We will try to ensure that, there is more responsible and accountable governance at
all levels of government in the country.”
