President Buhari has stated corrupt leaders that have stolen the wealth of the Nation will not escape going to jail. President Buhari said this today when he received a delegation of APC leaders from Benue state in the presidential villa, Abuja.
A statement from his media aide, Femi Adesina, quotes President Buhari saying that the misappropriations of funds meant for the development of the people are unjust and unfair to workers.
“I honestly don’t know how people sleep when workers have not been paid. The workers have to pay rent, buy food, send their children to school and they have healthcare to take care of. I assure you that my main interest is all Nigerians in all parts of the country. Therefore, if anybody who tries to create an impression that I prefer any group across ethnicity or religion let him dare me by being caught red-handed stealing public funds. I will deal with him’’ he said
President Buhari told the party leaders that the farmers and herdsmen clashes witnessed in Benue, Zamfara, and Taraba, are being carried out by “ungodly’’ people who had no religious or ethnic inclinations.
“We know about herders. The ones we knew carried sticks, and sometimes cutlasses to cut foliage for their cattle. We now have people who carry AK 47s and pretend they are herdsmen. We are working hard to secure our borders. We are going to see how the old cattle routes can be opened. We will control the movement. Please beg our people to be patient,’’ he said
The President pointed out that security personnel were already uncovering the network of the killers and arresting them.
