Speaking in an interview with the Voice of America (VOA), Mohammed said in the second term, this government will be more determined in the fight against corruption, adding that President Buhari will not compromise his anti-corruption programmes and policies.
The Minister alleged that 55 Nigerians shared a whopping sum of N1.3 billion during the past administration of President Goodluck Jonathan, which is equivalent to what the present administration had spent on infrastructure development in four years. He added:
“The president is committed to the fight against corruption and the administration will continue with it.
“For example, the treasury single account has instituted accountability in government‘s earnings and spending and the whistle blower policy has led to the recovery of billions of naira.
“It takes more than four years to clean a country endemic in corruption. However, it is on record that this administration has driven corruption under the carpet in four years.
“In the next four years, therefore, the government will consolidate on the achievements recorded particularly in the fight against corruption.”
