President Muhammadu Buhari has said that fighting corruption in a nation like Nigeria was not an easy task but he will carry on.
Buhari also asked security agencies to keep tabs on people on the corruption watch list and ensure justice is served.
The president also added that his administration had made efforts in the last three and a half years to revamp the economy and rebuild social infrastructure such as roads, rail services, and power generation.
The president disclosed this on Tuesday, at the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential campaign rally in Ado-Ekiti, capital of Ekiti state.
He said, “We are fighting corruption but it has not been easy. But we told the security agencies to keep tabs on those on our watch list and ensure that no stone is left unturned in ensuring that those who have cases to answer do not escape justice.
