We won’t surrender to corruption no matter what -- Buhari


We won’t surrender to corruption no matter what -- Buhari



President Muhammadu Buhari says his administration will never surrender to corruption.



He
said no amount of criticism and hatred will make him relent in the war
against corruption, insisting that doing that is a “betrayal of public
trust”.



The president made this known in his Eid-el Kabir message to Nigerians.



Garba
Shehu, his senior special assistant on media and publicity, quoted the
president as saying the anti-corruption fight is important to protect
the interests of the ordinary Nigerians.



“Even if some people hate
you for fighting corruption, you should not chicken out from the task
as a leader because doing so is a betrayal of public trust,” he said.



The president lamented that people have forsaken their religious beliefs in the pursuit of selfishness, greed and corruption.



Buhari
assured Nigerians that the country’s economic challenges were
temporary, saying the people’s welfare is the focal point of his
administration’s change agenda.



He urged Nigerians to rise above
personal, group, sectarian and other interests, and promote harmony and
tolerance in dealing with one another.



The president urged Muslims
to use the Eid-el Kabir for sober reflection and self-examination, and
strive to be good ambassadors of their religion by upholding high moral
values.



“We must sacrifice for others and remember always those who are less fortunate than ourselves,” the president said.



President Buhari on Monday arrived in his country home, Daura, Katsina state, for the Eid-el Kabir celebration.



Buhari landed at the Daura helipad at 6:35pm along with the members of his family and some aides.
