Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari has directed security agencies to keep tabs on the people on corruption watch list.
President Buhari stated this at the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential campaign rally in Ado-Ekiti, capital of Ekiti state on Tuesday, February 5, 2019.
According to him, fighting corruption in a nation like Nigeria was not an easy task but vowed to carry on. The president said:
“We are fighting corruption but it has not been easy. But we told the security agencies to keep tabs on those on our watch list and ensure that no stone is left unturned in ensuring that those who have cases to answer do not escape justice”.
He said that he was quite conscious of the promises he made while contesting four years ago, particularly the ones that have to do with corruption, insecurity and economic diversification.
“As part of our promises, we are building roads, rail lines and fighting corruption. We introduced treasury single account and increased power supply, so Nigerians can have their own businesses”.
He went further to say that his administration had made efforts in the last three and a half years to revamp the economy and rebuild social infrastructure, such as roads, rail services and power generation.
The president expressed ratitude to the people, saying, “I want to be grateful to Ekiti voters because the two times I came here, I achieved success.
“I came here in 2014 and I also came here to campaign for Fayemi. He won the governorship election. So, I thank you”.
APC leaders at the rally include: Governors Kayode Fayemi (Ekiti)’ Gboyega Oyetola (Osun); Abiola Ajimobi (Oyo); Rotimi Akeredolu (Ondo) and Ibikunle Amosun (Ogun).
Others were: Bisi Akande, a former interim chairman of the APC; Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, a national leader of the APC, and Olusola Oke, a party chieftain.
Abiodun Aluko, a former deputy governor of Ekiti state, formally decamped to APC.
