Buhari: Why I Defeated Goodluck Jonathan In 2015

President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday attributed his election victory in 2015 against former President Goodluck Jonathan to the revolt by Nigerians over glaring endemic corruption.

Buhari stated this while declaring open, the Corruption Risk Training for Heads of Anti-Corruption Agencies of the African Union, at the Conference centre, Presidential Villa, Abuja.

He said that the pervasive nature and devastating impact of corruption in the nation before the election, was dysfunctional.

He said, “When we assumed office in May 2015, the pervasive nature and devastating impact of corruption on the Nigerian nation had become dysfunctional. The momentum for our electoral victory could not be separated from the revolt of the people against glaring endemic corruption.”

He said, “The fight against corruption is a battle for the souls of our different countries and it is one that we must win. Since independence our continent has suffered from the severe consequences of corruption and it is imperative that we take steps to reverse the trend.

“During the past several months, we have been taking steps to institute integrity and transparency in the processes of government and holding those who have plundered our commonwealth to account for their actions.

“However, the costs of recovery and sanctions are also enormous. While commendable successes have been recorded, it has become manifest that corruption fights back. With enormous stolen resources elements have attempted to compromise law enforcing institutions and pervert the course of justice.

“This realization highlights the necessity of building a system that focuses on preventing corruption. We continue to implement policies aimed at building resilient systems that can withstand assault by corrupt officials.

“Our steps in this direction include the full implementation of both the Treasury Single Account (TSA) and the Bank Verification Number (BVN) the Open Government Partnership, various Executive Orders, strengthening the Anti-Corruption Agencies and permitting their full autonomy."
