The President noted that patriotic Nigerians had nothing to fear in the fight against corruption as his administration will ensure
justice and fairness to all.

He added that those who those who abuse public trust will face justice, in addition to returning their stolen assets to the nation’s coffers.

He further thanked Nigerians for supporting the Federal Government policies, programmes and actions aimed at improving security, revamping the economy and combating the fight against corruption.
