My war against corruption involves changing of Nigerians attitude, says Buhari


President Muhammadu Buhari has said that fighting corruption was not an easy task, as it involved changing people’s attitudes towards breaking the trust imposed on them by the public, which he insists is also corruption.

He spoke in Abuja on Tuesday during the commissioning of the new headquarters of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

The President said that he would not be deterred even as he is mindful of the fact that he was detained for three years for fighting corruption.

Buahri said: “We must change our ways of handling public trust. Corruption not only kills governments, but destroys societies. It is the major reason why we are struggling with basic developmental issues that other comparable nations have long overcome.

“The war of corruption is not an easy one to fight, because it affects so many different branches of our lives, so much that some people do not even consider breaking trust is anymore a crime. It has become the norm. That is why we must fight this attitude and encourage Nigerians to change their attitude and perspectives.

“The goal of this administration is to ensure the protection of public trust, and the anti-corruption war is at its centre. We never intended, and we are not engaged in witch-hunts, but we are determined within the laws to call people to account”.
