The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), has scored himself high in the fight against corruption.
Buhari in his Independence Day speech on Saturday said that his regime had made appreciable impact in the fight against corruption.
He said, “One of the areas where we have made significant progress is in the eradication of deeply entrenched corruption that permeates all facets of our national development.
“We strengthened the Institutions for tackling corruption and also cultivated international support, which aided the repatriation of huge sums of money illegally kept outside the country.
“The increasing number of prosecutions and convictions, with associated refunds of large sums of money is still ongoing. Furthermore, we would continue to block opportunities that encourage corrupt practices.”
