Nigeria @62: Buhari scores self high on anti-corruption fight

President Muhammadu Buhari on Saturday lauded his administration’s performance in tackling corruption since coming to power in 2015.

Mr Buhari spoke in his broadcast to mark Nigeria’s 62nd Independence. He said his administration has tackled “endemic corruption” through strategic intervention leading to the recovery of “huge sums of money illegally kept outside the country”.

Buhari admitted that although there is still a long way to go in rooting out corruption, his administration has made “appreciable gains”.

Buhari rode to power in 2015 on the back of fight against corruption and insecurity.
