The Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Muhammadu Buhari has said that a corrupt government is worse than armed robbery.

Buhari also spoke on the security challenges currently facing Nigeria as a country.

The APC candidate made the comments on Wednesday, March 18, during the party’s Town Hall meeting on security, held at the Barcelona Hotel, Abuja.

“I believe that a bad and corrupt government is a much danger to national security as armed robbers, kidnappers and terrorists. I want to commend our armed forces for their recent successes over the Boko Haram,” Buhari said.

“The total security concept reflects directly on improving the quality of the lives of our people and rebuilding the economy. Even if we have the best police, we will not be able to guarantee total security as long as 53 per cent of our youths remain unemployed and 70 per cent of our people are living below the poverty line,” he added.

Buhari also spoke on the economic achievements Nigeria recorded during his time as Head of State.
