- President Buhari has promised to reorganise the Nigeria Police Force if reelected to power
- The president added that his administration will also reform the judiciary
- According to Buhari, fighting corruption has been very difficult for his administration
President Muhammadu Buhari has lamented about the difficulties faced by his administration in fighting corruption in the country.
The Guardian reports that President Buhari said this in Abakaliki, Ebonyi state during the All Progressives Congress presidential campaign rally.
The president also said his administration is planning to re-organise the Nigerian Police Force and the judiciary to minimise corruption in these two sectors.
He said: "We are doing our best by trying to re-organise the Nigerian police and the judiciary itself because we put people into public office without their own houses. But within three years, they built houses in Abuja, opened accounts in Europe and America and we can’t touch them. Anyone we discover, we take them to court. And we hope they will be prosecuted."
