President Buhari Vows To Deal Elites Opposing His Anti-Graft War
President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday while vowing to deal with those opposing his anti-corruption war, said he regrets that the country’s elite are self-centred and only think of themselves.
The President who spoke in English and Hausa while breaking fast with guests at the Aso rock presidential villa on Monday said those who attempted to deter his administration from fighting corruption would suffer the consequences, the Punch reported
“Whoever deter us from fighting corruption will suffer the consequences. It is unfortunate that the elite are self-centred and they only think about themselves.
“Be assured that we care about you at all times. This government is concerned about your welfare and we will work hard to improve it,” Buhari told his guests which included the physically challenged, the Internally Displaced Persons, taxi drivers, commercial motorcycle riders, artisans such as butchers, hairdressers, barbers, tailors, members of the Buhari Support Organisation, President’s neighbours in Lobito Crescent, and junior workers in the headquarters of the All Progressives Congress.
The President said his government recognized and was mindful of the plight of the disadvantaged members of the public.
An IDP, Musbau Diti, who spoke on behalf of others, urged the President to do more to alleviate the sufferings of people in the different IDP camps across the country. He also urged Buhari to set up a commission for persons with disabilities.
Buhari personally served some of his physically challenged guests before he returned to his seat to break his fast.
Buhari was joined at the dinner by Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo; Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara; Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Babachir Lawal; the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Muhammed Bello, and some presidential aides as well as other top government officials among others.
