On Friday, President Muhammadu Buhari blasted Nigerians, saying they are “very forgetful” about his administration’s “achievements” over the last six years.
Buhari also accused the members of the House of Representatives of misappropriating the nation’s fund, saying that if their legitimate limits and expenditure are to be worked out, they will all be exposed.
Buhari stated in an interview broadcasted on NTA on Friday evening that his administration has tried, since taking office in May 2015; adding that those who choose to criticize him should do so objectively.
When asked about his government’s anti-corruption efforts, Buhari stated that his administration had done a good job of prosecuting corrupt lawmakers.
“Nigerians, I think, are very forgetful. I am very pleased that the majority of Nigerians think that this administration, under the circumstance, is (sic) doing their (sic) best but people who misappropriated funds are elected members either at the state or federal level.
“You can accuse them or try to prove that when they were elected members of the House of Reps and they are given ministries and so on, they had only one house and maybe a wife but now they have several houses may be in Abuja, maybe in Lagos, so, rarely, if you try to work out their legitimacy limit, viz-a-viz their expenditure, they will be exposed,” He said
He also stated that specialized courts should be established in the country to enhance the prosecuting of corrupt politicians.
