President Muhammadu Buhari has confirmed the determination of his government to recover funds stolen from the country by corrupt officials.

Buhari repeated the commitment on Wednesday, October 28, 2015, while addressing members of the Nigerian community in New Delhi, India.

The president’s comments were contained in  a statement released by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina.

The statement reads:

“The anti-corruption campaign will be ongoing for many years. We are committed to the enthronement of good governance that plugs the loopholes in public sector accounting, and the use of scarce resources for public good.”

“We are determined to demonstrate exemplary leadership that will make our citizens to change their ways in a manner that lays a solid foundation for reconstruction and development.”

“I am confident that our approach to fighting corruption through value re-orientation, improved internal processes and systems and the rule of law, as well as enhancing the capacity of the various anti-corruption agencies and institutions will prove more enduring in addressing this evil.”

“In the meantime, we will continue to prosecute those who have been indicted for corrupt practices and ensure that stolen funds are recovered, to serve as deterrence to others who nurse the ambition of seeking public office solely for illegal personal gain.”

Buhari is in India to attend the India-Africa forum and is expected back in the country on October 30.
