It’s our duty to imprison those who stole Nigeria’s wealth – Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari said it was his government’s duty to imprison those who corruptly enriched themselves with the country’s wealth.

The President said on Saturday at the presidential rally of the All Progressives Congress in Lagos that if re-elected, he would continue to focus on the promises he made in 2015.

“I assure you that the promises we made in 2015, based on which you elected us, we’ve made tremendous progress and I have mentioned through others what the administration is doing on security, economy and fighting corruption,” he said.

The President vowed to eventually prosecute those who had yet to return Nigeria’s stolen wealth and imprison them.

He said, “I assure you, whoever is entrusted (with public property), his primary responsibility is to account for it.

“If the proper thing is not done, we will eventually get a hold of them, take away what they have stolen and get them in prison.

“This is our duty, this is our responsibility and I assure you we will continue to do it.”

Buhari said he looked forward to the people’s support for his re-election.
