President Muhammadu Buhari has said corruption is far more difficult to fight in Nigeria than Boko Haram and other form of insecurity
Buhari speaking at a town hall meeting in Kano, to round up his two day visit to Kano state, explained that under a democratic dispensation, corruption is difficult to fight, because of the enormous resources at the disposal of corrupt persons facing trial.
“Let me say, while linking the war against insurgency vis a vis the issue of smuggling as being raised, we have a duty to keep sound relationship with our neighbours, a reason why I went to Chad and Cameroon immediately after assuming office,” he said
Earlier on Wednesday, Buhari at a state banquet organised by the state government, says he is overwhelmed by the large number of people who welcomed him to the state.
The massive reception, according to the president, should serve as a strong warning to the opposition politicians that his popularity in the north still remains unshaken.
With the votes he recorded in Kano State during presidential polls in 2003, 2007, 2011 and 2015, Buhari says nobody could dare to rig polls in the state.Please subscribe to our newsletter
