President Muhammadu Buhari says fighting corruption in a democratic setting is a difficult task to accomplish.⁣
⁣
The president disclosed this during an interview with Arise Television which was televised on Thursday.⁣
⁣
According to him, the war against corruption has not been easy for him since he became a democratically elected President six years ago.⁣
⁣
He, however, stressed that his administration had succeeded in easing out corrupt public officials without making noise about it.⁣
⁣
Buhari recalled that much was achieved in the fight against corruption when he was military 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.⁣
⁣
He cited a situation where state governors continued to starve the local governments of funds saying “in a situation where N300 million is allocated to local government and they are given N100 million is not fair”.⁣
