President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday said all mismanaged and misappropriated national assets recovered would be sold off.
He said the proceeds would be paid to the national treasury for the benefit of the country.
According to a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, the President spoke when he received the representatives of social groups in the Daura Emirate.
Buhari said his administration would continue to pursue a robust, effective and legitimate anti-corruption campaign that would safeguard the treasury and commonwealth of all Nigerians.
The President said he would not allow a repeat of what happened in the 1980s when buildings and other ill-gotten property seized by his military administration were returned to corrupt officials following his ouster as the Head of State.
He told the groups that the All Progressives Congress-led government would consolidate on the gains and monumental achievements in the development of infrastructure across the country.
“For most ordinary Nigerians, if you give them good roads, railway and stable electric power they will be happy to carry on with their lives,” the President said.
On agriculture development, the President promised that the Federal Government would sustain the provision of funds, improved seedlings and fertiliser to farmers to ensure that the sector remained the largest employer of labour in the country.
On the key priorities of the administration, the President maintained that his records of achievements in security, war against corruption and the revival of the economy, had been very impressive.
He expressed delight that more young people were venturing into agribusiness while security, especially in the North-East, had remarkably changed from what he met in 2015.
The spokesman for the delegation, Alhaji Mohammed Saleh, commended Buhari for implementing policies and programmes that had created gainful employment for thousands of young Nigerians under the Social Investment Programme.
Saleh said improved electricity supply in their communities and growing foreign reserves were clear indications of good management of the economy under the present administration.
The delegation also congratulated the President on his appointment as the continental champion against corruption by the African Union, noting that it underscored the global appreciation of the good work he was doing in fighting corruption.
