President Muhammadu Buhari says fighting corruption has remained the most difficult thing for his administration but he won’t relent as he intends to ensure that those who mismanaged the nation’s resources live to regret it.
President Buhari spoke on Monday in Ilorin, Kwara state when the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential campaign delegation visited the Emir of Ilorin, Zulu Gambari, in his palace.
“Your Highness, fighting corruption is the most difficult thing for the administration, but I will not give up.
“Those who are put in positions must give account and those who do not will surely regret it. We will continue to do our best for our people and our country”, the President stated.
He thanked the Emir for acknowledging the efforts of his government in the area of massive infrastructural development, and assured him that all ongoing road and irrigation projects in the state would be completed.
Welcoming the President to his palace, the Emir of Ilorin thanked his guest for maintaining peace and stability across the country since he assumed office in 2015.
The monarch particularly expressed his appreciation to the President for embarking on massive infrastructural projects and thereafter, prayed for his good health to take Nigeria to the next level.
“I commend your sense of duty and accountability. You are a tested leader and we know you are an achiever,” the Emir said
He further prayed for the president to succeed in all his endeavours, including the presidential election.
