President Muhammadu Buhari has spoken on the challenges faced by his administration’s war against corruption, maintaining that it was not a one-day job, but a work in progress.
Buhari, in an interview in the maiden edition of 2017 Nigeria Outlook, said his administration’s war against corruption is on course, the Guardian reports. The president admitted that not everything was being got right, but noted that the administration was making progress.
“We shall get to where we are headed. Yes,we are succeeding in the anti-corruption war, cases are being investigated and those indicted are being prosecuted”.
The president asked the EFCC to urgently provide a detailed submission on amount of monies recovered so far by the anti-graft agency, since the present administration came on board in June, 2015. The EFCC was also asked to submit a detailed inventory of assets seized, including vehicles, jewelries and other valuables, latest by Friday April 7, 2017.
However, no report has been gathered on this issue as to whether or not the EFCC promptly responded to Mr. President’s order. Two things are probable: its either the collation is taking much longer time than expected or the anti corruption agency itself is corrupt.
