Buhari: Nigerians must Abhor Corrupt Practices


By Chineme Okafor and Nnenna Akuma in Abuja

For Nigeria to achieve some greatness in all facets of her national life, all her citizens and institutions must be willing to abhor corrupt practices and embrace good ethics, President Muhammadu Buhari has said.

Buhari said that Nigeria’s target to advance her economy and guarantee its people sustainable prosperity is wholly dependent on her ability to completely eradicate all forms of corrupt practices across board from her body polity, adding that this was a panacea to the many challenges bedevilling the country.

Based on this, Buhari stated that he would stop at nothing to ensure that his government abolishes corrupt practices within the country’s institutions and systems.

He said these on Monday at the 2017 edition of the annual national management conference of the Nigerian Institute of Management (NIM) in Abuja, where he was a special guest of honour.

Though represented by the Head of Service of the Federation (HOSF), Mrs. Winifred Oyo-Ita, Buhari stated that his administration has adopted and continued to push for corporate governance practices amongst its agencies and personnel as a means of enthroning transparency and efficiency in government’s businesses.
