President Muhammadu Buhari is optimistic that the Federal Government will win the war against corruption.
He said that his administration would win the war no matter how had the road during his live broadcast to mar the Democracy Day early this morning.
He said, “The second primary object of this Administration is to fight corruption headlong.
“Like I have always said, if we don’t kill corruption, corruption will destroy the country. Three years into this Administration, Nigerians and the international community have begun to applaud our policies and determination to fight corruption.
“We are more than ever before determined to win this war, however hard the road is.
“I therefore appeal to all well-meaning Nigerians to continue to support us in this fight,” he said.
The president observed that various policy measures already put in place to stem the tide of corrupt practices have been yielding remarkable results.
He said that some of the key reform policies which included the Treasury Single Account (TSA) had saved government billions of Naira from maintenance fee payable to banks.
According to him, N200 billion has so far been saved from elimination of ghost workers in public service while Whistleblowing Policy had helped to recover over N500 billion.
