Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari has vowed to go tougher on corruption if he is re-elected in the February election.
Speaking on Friday at the flagging off of his presidential campaign in southern city of Uyo, capital of oil-rich Akwa Ibom state, Buhari said with him remaining in power, the era of handouts for people who are not ready to work is over.
Buhari told the mammoth crowd at the Uyo Stadium that Nigerians would not regret voting for him if he wins the coming election.
He said that not only would he secure Nigeria, he would also “stop corruption.”
The president said his focus would continue to be on security, economy and the fight against corruption.
Earlier, national chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole, said Buhari’s integrity has earned him global respect across the world.
Nigeria’s electoral body has green-lighted more than 70 presidential candidates to run for the presidency in February. Enditem
