The wife of Nasarawa state governor, Salamatu Al-Makura, has said that President Muhammadu Buhari’s fight against corruption is aimed at encouraging Nigerians to work hard and be honest in all endeavors, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.
Al-Makura spoke at the All Progressives Congress (APC) campaign rally organised by women and youth groups in the north-central zone, held on Tuesday, January 8, in Lafia.
“Buhari wants Nigerians, especially the youths, to work very hard; he believes that success is possible with honesty and resilience, instead of corrupt short-cuts,” she said.
She said that Buhari deserved a second tenure because he had invested in youth development, and urged Nigerians to vote for him in the February 16 presidential polls.
Al-Makura advised youths to key into Buhari’s anti-corruption war so as to position Nigeria to take its place among the comity of progressive nations.
“We have seen the efforts of Mr president; we want him to continue with his good work so that he will restore Nigeria’s lost glory,” she said.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that President Muhammadu Buhari had said that his administration is slow in fighting corruption because the system is slow.
The president said this when he received the Federal Capital Territory community, who paid him Christmas homage at his official residence on Tuesday, December 25, in Abuja.
President Buhari, who apparently was reacting to those allegedly accusing his administration of being too slow in tackling the nation’s challenges, including `endemic corruption’ in the society, said: “It’s not Baba (Buhari) that is slow but it is the system."
