Report made it known that, General Muhammadu Buhari,(rtd) presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has restated his commitment to wage war on corruption and kill it if voted as Nigeria’s next president.
He warned that if corruption is not kicked out of Nigeria the danger will kill Nigeria.
Buhari made this declaration during a South-South zonal presidential rally held at the Liberation Stadium, Elekahia in Port Harcourt on Thursday. He also said the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) led federal government and most of its controlled states have been fraught with ‘monumental corruption’ in the past 16 years.
The stunted state Nigeria has found itself economically is due to corruption, he stated. which has permeated into virtually into all spheres of the country.
“The issue before us is very clear indeed. Please sit in your home, or in small groups, and ask yourselves these questions: How much was accrued to Nigeria in the past 16 years that the PDP has controlled the federal government?
“How much of these funds have trickled down to you as a Nigerian? Whatever answers you arrive at should determine what party and candidate that you will vote for on April 11.
“We should not personalize this issue. It is not about Buhari; it is about us; it is about you and me; it is about our children and the future of our children. My fear is that if we don’t kill corruption in Nigeria, corruption will kill us. So, the choice before us is to resolve to kill corruption and free our country from the firm grip of corrupt men and women.
“If those in the PDP who have been in control of our resources at the centre and in most states of the country have been responsive and responsible, there would not have so much insecurity and poverty in the country today.
