“Corruption is an existential threat to Nigeria. Despite the gains we have made in closing the gates, we know that there is still much ground to be covered to stop systemic corruption. We are committed to deepening the work we started this past term.
“The nation’s assets and resources will continue to be organised and utilised for the good of the common man.” Said the President on Sunday.
He asked to be voted again in 2019 primarily to keep fighting the corruption war which his administration started in 2015.
“The next four years will be quite significant for our country. Nigeria is faced with a choice to keep on building a new Nigeria or to go back to its tainted past, which favoured the opportunistic few.
“Our choices will surely shape us, defining clearly, our economic security and our future prosperity. Nigeria, more than ever before, needs a stable and people-focused government to move the development of our county forward.
“Join us in this journey to the next level, for a strong and stable Nigeria…” President Buhari added.
Over the years since this Administration took office, we have seen criminals turn to saint the moment they jump ship.
There have also been several accounts of misappropriation of funds. The number 2 man in the country has been accused of misappropriation of funds.
Someone who was allegedly caught taking a bribe was given an award week after.
Cost of Governance is still the same.
It gets clearer as the days go by that a Government voted in primarily because it ‘declared’ war against corruption, could indeed not know what corruption is.
And how can one fight what she doesn’t know?
The people’s democratic party’s candidate, Atiku Abubakar also unveiled his ‘Plan to Get Nigeria Working Again’.
According to him, his plan would do the following;
• give Nigerian workers a living wage
• give Nigeria’s youth a world-class education
• empower Nigerian women, reduce maternal mortality and increase their financial stability
• cater for the elderly, so our people are not afraid of growing old
• invest in our failing power, water, and roads
The above-listed plan would be fantastic had it been said in the 1970s.
