"Some people are Trying to see my downfall but I will Never Surrender to Corruption in Nigeria" - Buhari Speaks on Sallah 

President Buhari has reiterated his promise to Nigerians not to ever surrender to corruption.

Buhari spoke in his Eid-el Kabir message to Nigerians made available to journalists by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu.

“Even if some people hate you for fighting corruption, you should not chicken out from the task as a leader because doing so is a betrayal of public trust,” he said.

On the current economic challenges facing Nigerians, the President reassured Nigerians that such were temporary because the welfare of the people is the main focus of his administration. In a bid to buttress this point, the President cited initiatives unfolded by the administration under the Social Investment Programme among which was the recent decision to distribute recovered looted funds to the poor against the past practices of re-looting such funds by some people in authority.

Buhari also urged Nigerians to rise above any selfish interest, and instead promote harmony and tolerance in dealing with one another at all times.

“We must sacrifice for others and remember always those who are less fortunate than ourselves,” the President declared.

Meanwhile, President Buhari is expected to celebrate this year’s celebration in his hometown, Daura, Katsina State on Tuesday.
The President on Monday left Abuja for the purpose.

The President is expected back in Abuja after the Sallah break.
