country of the debilitating effects of the wanton looting of public funds
in past years.
Addressing State House staff who assembled to welcome him back from his
recent vacation, President Buhari assured them that he will continue to

to improving the living conditions of ordinary Nigerians.
“I have never in my life believed in corruption. If we make any mistake in
what we are doing and compromise our integrity, the country will be

nation and urged them to remain patriotic and eschew corruption in the
discharge of their duties.
