More trouble awaits arms funds looters –President Buhari

Nigeria President,General  Muhammadu Buhari has vowed that more trouble is in the offing for those who stole and shared the funds meant for the procurement of military hardware. President Buhari spoke at the Presidential Villa in Abuja yesterday while receiving the Northern Christian Leaders Eagles Eyes Forum.

A former National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki and many others are accused of stealing and sharing over $15billion meant for the purchase of arms to prosecute the war against the Boko Haram insurgency in the North-east during the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan.

But yesterday, the president said it was gratifying that those who stole and shared the funds were already regretting.
Buhari emphasised that the culprits would regret more and specifically warned that those caught in corruption would have themselves to blame. He said it was saddening that some of those who stole our national resources put the money in their personal accounts.
The president pledged that in its resolute commitment to restoring the economic fortunes of the country and deliver prosperity to Nigerians, his administration would not hide anything from the citizenry.
Buhari appealed to religious leaders not to lose hope in the unity, stability and progress of the nation, assuring that the federal government would continue to prioritise the safety of lives and property.
This, he said, is in addition to equipping farmers with the right tools, technology and techniques to boost agriculture.
“You must tell your followers the truth about the country. We have nothing to hide because we have no other country but Nigeria. Tell them to give us a chance to stabilise the country,” the president urged. 
He thanked the Christian leaders for their support to the anti-corruption war of his administration. 
Earlier, leader of the forum, Pastor Aminchi Habu, had said he saw a new Nigeria during President Buhari’s administration.
The clergyman called on Nigerians to support the president’s anti-corruption war as well as his vision to restore the country’s lost glory.
