"Fighting corruption in a country like Nigeria has not been an easy task" : declared by PRESIDENT Muhammadu Buhari


Buhari, while  addressing the mammoth crowd of party supporters and admirers who thronged the  12,000 capacity Ekiti Parapo pavilion, venue of the rally, said he was quite conscious of the promises he made while contesting four years ago, particularly the ones that have to do with corruption, insecurity and economic diversification. 

His words: “We are fighting corruption but it has not been easy. But we told the security agencies to keep tab on those on our watch list and ensure that no stone is left unturned to ensuring that those who have cases to answer do not escape justice. “As part of our promises, we are building roads, rail lines, fighting corruption. 

We introduced Treasury Single Account and increased  power  supply, so Nigerians can have their own businesses. “I want to be grateful to Ekiti voters, because the two times I came here, I achieved successes. I came here in 2014 and I also came here to campaign for Fayemi, he won the governorship election, so I thank you.” Present at the rally were: Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, governors Kayode Fayemi (Ekiti),  Gboyega Oyetola (Osun), Abiola Ajimobi (Oyo), Rotimi Akeredolu (Ondo), Ibikunle Amosun (Ogun), former All Progressives Congress, APC, interim National   Chairman, Chief Bisi Akande, Mr. Olusola Oke, among others.


Buhari said he has not betrayed the country on the promises he made in 2015 to secure the nation, fight corruption and diversify the economy and make Nigeria self sustaining in terms of   local production.

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, who addressed the crown in Yoruba, said: “A sum of $383 billion was gotten from the oil between 2010 and 2014 under Dr Goodluck Jonathan. That was when we had the highest but nothing was done with it.
