The Presidency has admitted that the anti-corruption war has been tough saying corruption has been fighting back vehemently, finding accomplices in various forms and guises.
Just as it said those whose illicit ways of accumulating wealth have been blocked by the present administration will continue to criticise the Federal Government.
According to a statement , the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, said this during a Radio Nigeria programme in Kaduna.
Shehu however said despite the strong resistance of the opposition and their actions to thwart the government’s efforts every day, the war against corruption would not stop.
“Let me say one thing. Those whose illicit ways of accumulating money have been stopped will criticise this government but all that will not derail the unfaltering commitment of the President, Muhammadu Buhari’s administration to the war against corruption,” the presidential spokesman said.
He said President Muhammadu Buhari was aware that Nigerians voted for him massively in the 2015 presidential election because of his promise to fight corruption.
He said the President had therefore resolved not to let them down.
“The President is aware that this was one of the main reasons why Nigerians in their millions put their trust in him; the main reason they voted him into power in 2015.
“To keep that trust of ordinary Nigerians who voted him into the office, he has vowed to give corruption a good fight. He will not let them down,” Shehu said.
“Corruption has been fighting back vehemently, finding accomplices in various forms and guises. Nevertheless, the Buhari administration will not relent,” he added.
Shehu also said the days when corruption reigned indiscriminately in Nigeria were over.
“Nothing will return our country to those sad, old days of wanton thievery that have plunged us into the economic mess from which Nigeria is currently recovering. The war against corruption in Nigeria is one of those clashes between good and evil, where good is determined to triumph,” he said.
The presidential spokesman also said there was no truth in the claims that members of the governing party, the All Progressives Congress, were being spared in the fight against corruption.
