Spokesmen for President Muhammadu Buuhari, Femi Adesina and Garba Shehu, Monday spoke the president’s mind on his avowed anti-corruption fight. They represented the president in addressing a group of protesters who marched on the presidential villa, declaring support for the cause. “I believe it is time for Nigeria to change course. That is why I sought election as President and got elected. As President, I am determined that Nigeria must move away from a course of endemic corruption that was leading us to perdition,” the president’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, stated.
“There can be no question of our willfully allowing anyone to get away with corruption. No matter the pressure and entreaties, the anti-corruption war will continue and all accused persons will have their day in court.” The protesters, under the banner of the “Nigerians March Against Corruption” was led byAisha Yesufu. They deplored individuals pressuring the president to ditch his anti-corruption stance.
