Grand corruption denied Nigeria of infrastructure revolution, says Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has said that the grand corruption that characterised past administrations denied Nigeria the opportunities of experiencing what he described as infrastructure revolution.

He said the grand corruption saw some people making away with billions of dollars on fraudulent oil deals and bogus military contracts.

Buhari said this in an opinion he wrote and was published by News Week on Monday to coincide with his official visits to Washington DC during which he met with United States President Donald Trump at the White House.

The President wrote, “In fact, very few major infrastructure projects were completed in Nigeria in the years leading to my inauguration as president, a period during which the country enjoyed its highest crude oil prices in recent history.

“The grand corruption of our recent past, that saw tens of billions of dollars frittered away on fraudulent oil deals and bogus military contracts, put paid to all opportunities for an infrastructure revolution.

“Now we have seized the chance to do things better. We have cleaned up falsified civil service payrolls and commenced the prosecution of payroll impostors—saving taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars annually.

“We set up a whistleblower policy aimed at deterring corrupt practices in government, and committed to the Open Government Partnership. In January this year, Nigeria was elected to the Partnership’s Steering Committee.”

Buhari admitted that a lot of work still lies ahead of his administration.
