President Muhammadu Buhari, yesterday, said he could not single-handedly fight-corruption, pointing out that it is a collective responsibility of Nigerians.
Speaking at the 25th convocation ceremony of the Federal University of Technology, Minna, Niger State, the President said he does not have the magic wand to effect the change he is championing alone.
“As you all know, our administration came to power on the promise of change. Changing our society from the path of corruption in high and low places is a task that we all must be committed to. It is not a magic wand that a single leader alone can use. We all have to believe in it and we have to work for it and inculcating the virtues of honour integrity and discipline are essentially the duty of the family and educational institutions,” the president said.
“Nigeria still has hope and promise because our youths -vibrant, energetic and creative citizens – are the greatest resource and pillar of this country.
“Today may be rough and tough but tomorrow will be better. I have hope because I see in our youths inventors, problem solvers and leaders that will one day make Nigeria greater than my government will make it,” the President, who was represented by the Director of Science and Technology in the Federal Ministry of Education, Sandy Gandy Chega, said.
