Successive govt must continue with fight against corruption – Buhari

By Mathew Dadiya, Abuja

President Muhammadu Buhari has indicated his desire that the foundation laid by this administration in the war against graft would be sustained by successive governments in the country, describing corruption as an existential threat to nations.

The President said this when he played host to the Management of the Code of Conduct Tribunal, led by the Chairman, Danladi Yakubu Umar, on Thursday at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Buhari described the Code of Conduct Tribunal as “an important tool in our fight against corruption over the last seven years.”

He added that such frontline agencies, “which are in the trenches are relied upon to demonstrate that the government means what it says and remains committed against corruption in all its forms.”

The President expressed his desire for a sustained anti-graft war thus: “It is our hope that the foundation which has been laid by this administration will be carried forward and continued, as the issue of corruption remains an existential threat to all nations.”

Buhari recognized the sacrifices being made by the Code of Conduct Tribunal and similar agencies “in the midst of very challenging economic and revenue shortages.”

He pledged innovative and new models of financing very important agencies and work programs that are critical.

In his remarks, the Tribunal Chairman, Danladi Umar, commended the Buhari administration for the salutary impact it has made in the area of infrastructural development, agriculture, and provision of social services, among others.

He said the Tribunal was hampered by funding challenges, and poor staffing, and appealed for the intervention of the President.
