Amid severe economic recession bedeviling the country, President Muhammadu Buhari has vehemently stated that his major assignment is to fight corruption.
Buhari made this disclosure on Saturday while addressing the media on the success of his outing at the United Nations General Assembly.
Quoting the president, Buhari’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, said that “fighting corruption remains of prime importance to our administration,” adding that the campaign was already yielding positive gains including significant stolen assets recoveries.
The President reviewed all his major and side events during the visit and highlighted the issues on which he sent a clear and direct message to world leaders.
He said: “I highlighted the need for the international community to work together to liberate humanity from poverty, save our planet from the devastation of climate change and rid the world of terrorism for a more peaceful and prosperous future.
“I mentioned that the plight of Internally Displaced Persons arising from Boko Haram terrorism is of particular concern to us.
“For this reason, we have taken concrete steps to address their humanitarian needs and to ensure that necessary conditions are established to enable the voluntary return of the displaced persons to their homes in safety and dignity.”
