‘‘When I was going fast I was arrested so why should I go fast again. It is not Baba that is slow, it is the system.”
President Muhammadu Buhari, who made this confession today, Tuesday, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja when he played host to Christian and Islamic leaders to mark Christmas, said: “so, whatever the case, I will not stop pointing fingers at those who have illegally abused trust by taking (public) funds entrusted to them.”
“People are calling me ‘‘Baba Go Slow’’ because I had jettisoned the military way of fighting corruption and opted for due process under a constitutional democracy.”
He promised to continue to fight against corruption by being guided by the rule of law and respect for constituted authority.
“I will continue to do my best to recover what rightly belongs to Nigeria from the treasury looters.”
