Nigerians must unite to kill corruption

I always like to go down memory lane to show how lucky we are as a political group.

 

President Muhammadu ‎Buhari on Tuesday appealed to Nigerians, irrespective of their political or ethnic affiliations, to form a united front against corrupt practices in the society.

The President, who made the appeal when hosted members of the All Progressive Congress (APC) to the breaking of fast at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, reiterated that "if we don't kill corruption, corruption will kill Nigeria."

He also enjoined members of the APC to drop their differences or influence in order for the party to achieve its campaign promises to Nigerians.

According to him, the APC-led administration is determined to fulfill all the three basic promises of addressing security, economy/employment and corruption which it made in its manifesto.

"No matter the level you are, drop your influence so that we can help achieve the manifesto - security, economy, employment and corruption- because if we don't kill corruption, corruption will kill Nigeria."

"We have to ensure that people we bring forward are those that will move the society forward,’’ he said

President Buhari,‎ who narrated how the APC successfully defeated the PDP-led Federal Government in the March 28 presidential election, commended Tinubu for his support and words of encouragement.

"I always like to go down memory lane to show how lucky we are as a political group."
