Buhari’s achievements that earned him re-

fight against corruption and spurred
Nigerians to join in the campaign of exposing
all forms of corrupt practices.

consolidated fund that will last beyond the
issue of waiting for the budget. Listen to me
now, Buhari is not backing sharia law as
people are saying.
“I will like to say that Ohanaeze should be
scrapped because they have been causing
problems. You hear today that they support
this person and the next day, they support
another person and now look at where they
have landed us.”
