The Senior special assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu on Sunday said that lingering corruption in the country is fighting back vehemently.
Speaking during a Radio Nigeria Programme, Garba stated that Buhari-led Government will not relent in its fight against corruption, maintaining that it was the “main reason why Nigerians in their millions” voted Buhari in 2015.
He said: “The President is aware that this was one of the main reasons why Nigerians in their millions put their trust in him; the main reason they voted him into power in 2015,” he said.
“To keep that trust of ordinary Nigerians who voted him into the office, he has vowed to give corruption a good fight. He will not let them down.
“Corruption has been fighting back vehemently, finding accomplices in various forms and guises. Nevertheless, the Buhari administration will not relent.
“Nothing will return our country to those sad, old days of wanton thievery that have plunged us into the economic mess from which Nigeria is currently recovering”.
