President Muhammadu Buhari has said that fighting corruption in a democratic system of governance is difficult.
The president stated this during an interview with Arise Television on Thursday.
According to the president, the war against corruption has not been easy for him since he became a democratically elected President six years ago.
however, he stressed that his administration had succeeded in easing out corrupt public officials without making noise about it.
Recalling his time as a military leader, Buhari said much was achieved in the fight against corruption when he was the Head of State in the early 80s “when a lot of people were sent to prisons before I was also booted out”.
The president frowned at the way and manner the local government system was being managed, saying the local government administration was almost non-existent in the country.
