President Muhammadu Buhari on Saturday called on Nigerians to join hands with his administration to fight corruption, stressing that he cannot do it alone.
The President who was represented by the Director of Science and Technology in the Federal Ministry of Education, Sandy Gandy Chega made the call while speaking at the 25th Convocation ceremony of the Federal University of Technology, Minna, Niger State.
Buhari said he had no magic wand to effect the change he is championing, adding that youths are the greatest resource and pillar of the nation and with them all hope is not lost.
He said, “As you all know, our administration came to power on the promise of change. Changing our society from the path of corruption in high and low places is a task that we all must be committed to. It is not a magic wand that a single leader alone can use. We all have to believe in it and we have to work for it and inculcating the virtues of honour integrity and discipline are essentially the duty of the family and educational institutions,”
“Nigeria still has hope and promise because our youths -vibrant, energetic and creative citizens – are the greatest resource and pillar of this country.
“Today may be rough and tough but tomorrow will be better. I have hope because I see in our youths inventors; problem solvers and leaders that will one day make Nigeria greater than my government will make it.”
Buhari maintained that Nigerians must be committed to the fight against corruption.
