” Many, especially naysayers, have misinterpreted these developments as a sign that the Administration’s fight against
corruption is waning.

“In fact, the main opposition PDP has latched on to the developments to call for the resignation of Mr. President, a call that is nothing but infantile!

“Let me state here and now that the fight against corruption, a cardinal programme of this Administration, is alive and well.

“President Muhammadu Buhari, the African Union’s Anti-Corruption Champion, who also has an impeccable reputation globally, remains the driver of the fight and no one, not the least the PDP under whose
watch Nigeria was looted dry, can taint his image or reverse the gains of the fight.
