Meanwhile, President Muhammadu Buhari has said no single government is capable of solving all the problems facing the country.

He stated this on Monday, January 30th at the State of the Nation Dialogue organised by the Nigerian Bar Association in Abuja.

Buhari, who was represented by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, said the only solution is for successive governments to be building on the foundations laid by previous administrations.

He said; “I will say no one government in this country will be able to solve the problems of Nigeria but as we build on the processes laid by successive governments, not discarding completely what has been put in place; we will build our dreams, take one or two things to concentrate on and move on.

“We believe the outcome of this dialogue can be transmitted to us so that whatever resolutions are reached, whatever recommendations you make; that will become part of the document that we will prepare as we transit and handover to a new incoming government.”

Meanwhile, ahead of the 2023 general elections, Buhari urged Nigerians to reject any politician who will drag Nigeria back to the era of prevalent corruption.

He stated this on Thursday in Abuja at a conference on Fighting Corruption in Nigeria organised by the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC).

Buhari, who was represented by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha said he is leaving behind a legacy of zero-tolerance for corruption for the younger generation.

The president also said that all looted assets within and outside Nigeria must be recovered and used for the well-being of citizens while the looters will be prosecuted and convicted if found culpable.

He said; “In a matter of weeks, Nigerians will need to go to the polls again to elect their leaders in the general elections. I beseech Nigerians to reject politicians who would drag our country back to the dark ages in which corruption was made the order of the day.

“For me, corruption is evil and must be vehemently rejected in all ramifications by all Nigerians anywhere, anytime. It is by integrity, respect for rule of law, due process and genuine patriotism that we will make Nigeria the nation of our dream.

“So far, I am happy to say that a lot has been achieved by our anti-Corruption agencies, law enforcement agencies, and regulatory bodies in the fight against corruption, and I make bold to say that Nigerians have known that as your President, I abhor corruption.

“It is clear that I have neither shielded nor ordered the arrest of anyone. Rather, I gave our anti-corruption agencies enough resources (human financial and material) to deliver on their mandates.”
