President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday assured that his administration will continue to persuade other countries to repatriate stolen funds and assets from Nigerian.
He made the promise while speaking during the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential campaign at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium, Enugu State.
He said, “Whoever is caught, we will persuade the governments to bring back the money and we will invest it in infrastructures.”
Stressing that handling corruption in Nigeria under democracy is very difficult, he said that he is doing his best under the rule of law.
Noting that he doesn’t have new promises to make, he said that his administration has honestly made progress with the promises made in 2015.
The President recalled how the People’s Democratic Party wasted the resources that accrued to the nation for sixteen years.
According to him, more money would have to be devoted to education as one of the best ways to solve the problems of Nigeria.
He said that his administration has made progress in agriculture as many Nigerians are now eating Nigerian rice, with Nigerian farmers prospering from it.
The President also pointed out that if roads, railway lines and power are developed, Nigerians will focus on their businesses and won’t even mind who is ruling at the centre.
“Let us work hard to develop our resources.” he stated
The National Chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomhole said that it was important to give President Buhari another four years in other to continue the good work he started.
He said that those shouting rigging are the investors of rigging
Oshiomhole, who noted that Obasanjo is at the forefront of those shouting rigging, said that he has never won any election in the South West part of the country that he came from.
He said that anybody who believes in Buhari should also vote for other APC candidates in the state.
Oshiomhole said that it would amount to anti-party activities for anyone to say ‘vote for Mr. President this way and vote for others that way”
Enugu State, he said, is not the birthright of any political party and that it is already tired of the opposition party.
The President’s records and achievements, he said, are already speaking in his favour.
The Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, disclosed to the crowd that the government at its next meeting will approve railway project from Port Harcourt to Maiduguri, which will also benefit the state.
He also told them that the fastest route for the South East to rule the country is by voting for another four years for President Buhari, pointing out that Vice President Atiku Abubakar will not leave the stage after four years if voted in as President.
