Fighting corruption in democracy not easy – Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has said fighting corruption in a democratic setting is a difficult task to accomplish.

Buhari in an interview on Arise Television said the war against corruption has not been easy for him since he became a democratically elected President.


He stressed that his administration had succeeded in easing out corrupt public officials without making noise about it.

Buhari recalled that much was achieved in the fight against corruption when he was military Head of State in the early 80s “when a lot of people were sent to prisons before I was also booted out”.

Buhari frowned at the way and manner local government system was being managed, saying the local government administration was almost non-existent in the country.

He cited a situation where state governors continued to starve the local governments of funds saying “in a situation where N300 million is allocated to local government and they are given N100 million is not fair”.
