President Muhammadu Buhari has said that the duty of his administration was to jail those who looted the nation’s treasury.
Mr Buhari said this on Satuurday in Lagos at the presidential rally of the All Progressives Congress (APC), promising that if re-elected, he would continue to focus on the promises he made in 2015.
He pledged that his govt will continue to prosecute those who had corruptly enriched themselves by dipping their hands into the country’s commonwealth.
“I assure you that the promises we made in 2015, based on which you elected us, we’ve made tremendous progress and I have mentioned through others what the administration is doing on security, economy and fighting corruption.
“I assure you, whoever is entrusted (with public property), his primary responsibility is to account for it.
“If the proper thing is not done, we will eventually get hold of them; take away what they have stolen and get them imprisoned.
“This is our duty; this is our responsibility and I assure you we will continue to do it,” the president said.
However, his critics accuse him of prosecuting a one-sided war against corruption and using the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) as a tool against those he percieved as hhis enemies.
