Anti-corruption war built on fairness, Justice – Buhari 

President Muhammadu Buhari says patriotic Nigerians have nothing to

fear in the fight against corruption as his administration will ensure

justice and fairness to all.
Speaking to journalists Monday in Daura after attending Eid prayers to

celebrate Eid El Kabir, President Buhari said those who abuse public

trust will face justice, in addition to returning their stolen assets

to the nation’s coffers.
The President thanked Nigerians for supporting the Federal Government

policies, programmes and actions aimed at improving security,

revamping the economy and combating the fight against corruption.
‘‘We should thank God this year, the reports I’m getting, which is

very pleasing, is that we will have a bumper harvest this year.
‘‘I want Nigerians to realise that what this government inherited

after 16 years of the PDP government was no savings, no

infrastructure, no power, no rail, no road and no security.
‘‘Nigerians can see what we have done on Boko Haram and what we are

doing to resolve the problem in the Niger Delta.
‘‘Before the elections, we identified three major problems confronting

our country. The first is security; we need to sufficiently secure our

country to manage it well.
‘‘The second is economy, especially job for the youths and fighting

corruption which is continuous.
‘‘For the youths, graduates and non-graduates who are interested in

agriculture, the Federal Ministry of Agriculture in collaboration with

the CBN are doing something to provide employment for them,’’ the

President said.
President Buhari is observing this year’s Eid holiday in his native

home Daura, Katsina State and will return to Abuja after the two-day

public holidays.
