President Muhammadu Buhari has reaffirmed his administration?s resolve to curb corruption, plug all loopholes in public sector accounting and deploy available resources for the good of all Nigerians.

A statement issued by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, quoted him as disclosing this on Wednesday while addressing members of the Nigerian community in New Delhi, India.

He assured that the recovery of stolen funds and the prosecution of persons who have been indicted for corrupt practices will also continue to be vigorously pursued.

The ongoing recoveries and prosecutions of offenders, according to the President, will serve as deterrent to others who nurse the ambition of seeking public office solely for illegal personal gain.

He told the gathering that his administration is fully aware of the devastating consequences of the illegal diversion of public resources meant for national development into private bank accounts, and was doing all within its powers to stop such diversions.

According to him, ?The anti-corruption campaign will be ongoing for many years. We are committed to the enthronement of good governance that plugs the loopholes in public sector accounting, and the use of scarce resources for public good.

?We are determined to demonstrate exemplary leadership that will make our citizens to change their ways in a manner that lays a solid foundation for reconstruction and development.

?I am confident that our approach to fighting corruption through value re-orientation, improved internal processes and systems and the rule of law, as well as enhancing the capacity of the various anti-corruption agencies and institutions will prove more enduring in addressing this evil.
