President Muhammadu Buhari has warned that whoever is caught accepting bribe will be dealt with.
“Whoever is caught accepting bribe will certainly be dealt with”.
The President stated this during an interview with the Voice of America while re-affirming his administration’s commitment to the fight against corruption.
He said there has been progress made so far in the anti-corruption war by ensuring that checks and balances are put in place in the fight.
“There are checks and balances in checking for corruption.
“People alleging lack of progress in the fight against corruption should check what these offices have done”, the President added.
President Buhari had emphasised the need to win the war against corruption.
In his recent visit to Paris, the capital of France to attend the Peace Forum, he told world leaders that Nigeria has strengthened its laws and institutions to fight corruption, fast-track recovery of stolen assets and punish offenders.
“We must crack down on safe havens for corrupt assets. I also advocate sanctions by professional bodies against transactional middlemen (lawyers, bankers, brokers, public officials, etc.) who facilitate illicit financial flows,” he said.
