Those Caught In Corruption Will Have Themselves To Blame – Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday said although those who shared funds meant for the purchase of arms for the nation’s military are currently regretting their actions, they would regret more.

He said all those caught in his administration’s ongoing anti-corruption war would have themselves to blame.

According to a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, the President spoke while receiving a delegation of the Northern Christian Leaders Eagles Eyes Forum at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The President thanked the Christian leaders for their support to the Federal Government’s anti-corruption campaign and other policies geared towards reviving the economy, promising to do more.

He said, “It is saddening that some of those who stole from our national resources put the money in their personal accounts.

“However, it is gratifying that those who stole money and shared funds meant for the purchase of arms for our military are regretting their actions and they will regret more.

“Those caught in corruption will have themselves to blame.”

Buhari promised that his administration would not hide anything from Nigerians in its commitment to restore the economic fortunes of the country and deliver prosperity to Nigerians.

He appealed to the religious leaders not to lose hope in the unity, stability and progress of the country.

The President said the Federal Government would continue to prioritise the safety of lives and property, in addition to equipping Nigerian farmers with the right tools, technology and techniques to boost agriculture.

“You must tell your followers the truth about the country. We have nothing to hide because we have no other country but Nigeria.

“Tell them to give us a chance to stabilise the country. Your concern for the security, unemployment, anti-corruption campaign and the frequent altercations between herdsmen and farmers are genuine concerns.

“I know the Ministry of Agriculture and the Governors Forum are doing a lot to resolve the lingering crisis between herdsmen and farmers, we must give them a chance,” the President said.

The leader of the delegation, Pastor Aminchi Habu, was reported to have called on Nigerians to support the President’s anti-corruption war and his vision to restore the lost glory of Nigeria.

“In your administration, I see a new Nigeria where the fear of bribery, corruption and extortion is the beginning of wisdom.

“I see a new Nigeria, where tribalism, religion and ethnicity will no longer be a barrier that separates us but a bond that unites us for a greater tomorrow,’’ he said.
