Buhari: No More Easy Money To Throw Around

Published

Buhari-in-ZamfaraThe era of free money is gone for good, President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday, said in Gusau, Zamfara State.

Speaking when he commissioned the Wanke- Danjigba-Kucheri-Kigama-Bilbis Road in the North-West state, the president said there is no easy money to throw around again like before.

Buhari, who urged all Nigerians to think closely about the country’s situation, said: 
“There is no easy money to throw around. We must go back to farming and livestock rearing so that we can develop the industries, we must put our hands on deck to ensure success of our mission in engineering Nigeria”.

The president insisted that his administration would not relent in the ongoing anti-graft war, saying corruption had stunted the nation’s growth.

While assuring that his administration was not on a deliberate mission to humiliate or disgrace anybody, he promised that recovered loots would be put to public use.

“I also wish to reiterate to the people of Zamfara State and Nigerians in general the commitment of this administration to restore sanity in governance. We shall continue to prosecute the war against corruption. We do not wish or desire to humiliate or disgrace anybody, but we must recover stolen funds and put them to collect public use”, he said.

Buhari said since his administration was inaugurated on May 29, 2015, the journey to fix the country and restore the hope of the common man had begun in earnest.

He said the challenge of his government was translating the change promised into reality, noting that this could not happen without the culture of accountability and good governance.

“I assure all Nigerians that the grim economic situations are a passing phase which all societies go through”, the president added.

Buhari also stated that the security situation in Nigeria was improving, pointing out his administration’s commitment to securing the nation was already yielding results.

The president said the federal government remained committed to dealing decisively with all threats to national security from any quarters, adding that was part of the reasons he was personally in Zamfara to flag-off the military operations aimed at routing out the menace of cattle rustlers and armed bandits, not only in the state, but in the entire axis of the North-west.
