The fight against corruption will be intensified under President Muhammadu Buhari’s second term, Information, Culture & Tourism Minister Lai Mohammed has assured the international community.
Mohammed, who gave the assurance in an interview with the Voice of America (VOA) in Washington said the President would not compromise his anti-corruption programmes and policies.
The minister is in Washington to engage international media and think tank, promote and reiterate the successes of the President Buhari’s administration.
In the interview anchored in English by Aliyu Mustapha of the VOA Hausa service, the minister said the anti-corruption fight would be frontal in the agenda of the government “because corruption is one of the major causes of poverty and underdevelopment in the country.”
He recalled a saying by President Buhari that ‘if we do not kill corruption, corruption will kill us’ and reiterated the government’s commitment to the fight.
Mohammed said: “The President is committed to the fight against corruption and the administration will continue with it.
“For example, the Treasury Single Account (TSA) has instituted accountability in government‘s earnings and spendings and the whistle blower policy has led to the recovery of billions of naira.
“It takes more than four years to clean a country endemic in corruption. However, it is on record that this administration has driven corruption under the carpet in four years.
