While in power, President Muhammadu Buhari claims that no one can extort him about his obscene fortune and illegal enrichment because “I do not have one square inch outside Nigeria.”
The president reaffirmed his commitment to serve God and Nigeria till the end of his term in office and beyond while speaking at a State dinner held in his honor on Monday night in Damaturu, the capital of Yobe State.
“As I said more than 30 years ago, we have no other country than Nigeria. We must all stay here and salvage it together,” he urged, urging Nigerians to maintain their patriotism.
He recalled that Yobe State was among the states most heavily attacked by terrorists, and that the threat was particularly ubiquitous throughout the North East geopolitical zone.
Therefore, he proclaimed that he had upheld his promise to Nigerians in his May 29, 2015 inaugural speech to confront Boko Haram terrorists head-on and boldly stabilize the nation.
“God has helped us defeat Boko Haram in the North East, the economy has recovered, and some people are questioning me about the results of my campaign against corruption,” I replied.
Well, it’s not easy to fight corruption under this structure. Because the Constitution requires you to declare your holdings, I had to lock up several people while I was in the military as Head of State because they were unable to explain how their assets differed.
