President Muhammadu Buhari says it is the responsibility of his government to jail corrupt individuals who enrich themselves at the expense of millions of Nigerians.

Buhari who made this known at the presidential rally of the All Progressives Congress (APC) held in Lagos on Saturday, said if re-elected, he would continue the fight tooth and nail against corruption and other inhuman vices.

He assured that the second term will afford him the opportunity to fulfill all the promises he made in 2015.

The APC presidential candidate emphasised that he will not relent in ensuring that the nation’s economy improves, adding that the security apparatus will also be worked upon if he is given another chance to assume the highest office in Nigeria.

Buhari stressed that it was the primary responsibility of whoever is entrusted with public property to account for it, maintaining that his government will get hold of all the commonwealth of Nigeria that had been carted away by the corrupt persons.

“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.

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