The President, whose speech was devoted more to corruption, noted that except the county was rid of the problem, it would get nowhere.
He stated, “To succeed, moral integrity and conscience must continue to form the dominant character of our nation and its leadership.
“Corruption is an existential threat to Nigeria. Despite the gains we have made in closing the gates, we know that there is still much ground to be covered to stop systematic corruption. We are committed to deepening the work we stated this past term.
“The Nation’s assets and resources will continue to be organised and utilised for the good of the common man.”
The President told Nigerians that they were left between leaving him in office to fight corruption or allow the county to return to the past.
Buhari added, “The next four years will be quite significant for our country. Nigeria is faced with a choice to keep on building a new Nigeria or to go back to its tainted past, which favoured the opportunistic few.
“Our choices will surely shape us, defining clearly, our economic security and our future prosperity. Nigeria, more than ever before, needs a stable and people-focussed government to move the development of our county forward.
“Join us in this journey to the next level, for a strong and stable Nigeria…”
