Buhari says no amount of pressure will stop corruption fight!

Really those Nigerians who packed their selves over to Abuja to meet Buhari and ask him not no probe should be ashamed of themselves! How could you possibly say he should not probe corruption and let bygones be bygones? It's the most stupid thing i have heard! And those men could only have come because they are all corrupt themselves and have corrupt men as friends!
The law of the land is not just there to apply when you see fit to.In the western world,people are made to pay for their crimes when caught even if it was 40 years later! How can you ask those who have stolen and looted for the country to be pardoned? Some people really have no shame,i still can't believe they made that trip,but then again i do,cos every one of those men is suspect.
So you can imagine how glad i was to hear Buhari make this statement.There is no going back and all thsoe who have looted will be prosecuted and have their day in court! Lobatan!

Statement from the presidency below..after the cut

President Buhari assured Nigerians Monday in Abuja that no amount of pressure will make him give up the war against corruption in the country. In an address to a group of Nigerians who marched to the Presidential Villa to pledge their full support for his administration's anti-corruption campaign, President Buhari promised a relentless prosecution of the war against corruption, with due regard for the rule of law.
The President said that all persons charged with stealing the nation’s resources will have their day in court and that, upon conviction, their ill-gotten wealth will be seized and returned to government coffers. "I believe it is time for Nigeria to change course. That is why I sought election as President and got elected.

As President, I am determined that Nigeria must move away from a course of endemic corruption that was leading us to perdition. "There can be no question of our willfully allowing anyone to get away with corruption. No matter the pressure and entreaties, the anti-corruption war will continue and all accused persons will have their day in court," the President said.

Welcoming the support of the group - Nigerians March Against Corruption, President Buhari, who was represented by his Special Adviser (Media & Publicity), Mr. Femi Adesina, also reaffirmed his commitment to curbing insecurity in the country and boosting employment opportunities for Nigerians, especially the youth. He called for the continued support and solidarity of Nigerians as the present administration works to correct the wrongs of the past.

The Nigerians Against Corruption group led by Aisha Yesufu had condemned recent statements by some individuals against the President’s anti-corruption campaign.

They assured the President that the vast majority of ordinary Nigerians fully supported his ongoing efforts to curb corruption and urged him not to be deterred by the antics of those who do not share his laudable vision of a fairer, more equitable, corruption-free and progressive nation.
