While speaking on Monday when he hosted some internally displaced persons (IDPS) and the physically challenged to a dinner at the presidential villa in Abuja, President Muhammadu Buhari has vowed to deal with those who serve as barricade to his anti-corruption war.
The president who expressed the determination of his administration to tackle graft, said it was unfortunate that some elites had run the country aground, blaming most of the problems in the country on the 16 years rule of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
“We are committed to tackling corruption in this country, but whoever tries to deter us suffer the consequences,”he said.
The president also said there were indications of bountiful harvest in the year, saying he discovered this after interacting with farmers.
“This year I think we are indeed lucky. I met most of the northern Emirs recently and I asked them about the rainfall in their domain, some of them were even complaining that the rains were getting too much.
“That to me was an indication that we are going to have a bumper harvest towards the end of this year.
“I believe with this commitment we should not only feed ourselves in terms of rice and wheat and other food crops but we will be able to export to other countries and maybe attract foreign exchange too,” he said.
