Buhari vows to vows to Crush anti-corruption detractors

President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday night declared that those planning to deter his administration from fighting corruption in the country will face the consequences.

He spoke at the Presidential Villa during the breaking of fast with some Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs), Taxi drivers, hair dressers, motorcycle riders, barbers, transport workers, butchers, tailors, and junior staff of the campaign office of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

He said: “Whoever deters us from fighting corruption will suffer the consequences.”
The President said that it was unfortunate that some members of the elite were self-centred and only cared for themselves as very little was on ground to show for the huge income got from sales of oil in the 16 years of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) rule.

Noting that they mismanaged what accrued to the country, he said that the past administrations were not able to fix power, rail, and no drinking water for the populace among other problems.

He told the group that his administration was conscious of their needs and desire but that the government met very poor conditions on ground.

The prices of oil in the international market, he noted, fell from above $100 to $30 per barrel, which has adversely affected the economy.

The President took time to personally serve some of the physically-challanged Nigerians the type of food they wanted to eat during the dinner.

Delivering the votes of thanks, a disabled, Musbahu Lawal Didi commended the President for having the interest of disabled persons at heart.

He also urged the President to set up a Commission for the disabled so that their interest can be further taken care of.

Muslim and Christian prayers were offered by two IDPs including Musa Abdullahi from Gwoza, Borno State and Joseph Jauro from Adamawa State.

Present at the dinner included the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, and the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Babachir David Lawal.

The Deputy Chief Whip of the Senate represented Senate President Buk
