President Muhammadu Buhari has said he has no preference for any ethnicity or religion, and anyone who doubts that should try stealing public funds.
The president said this while receiving a delegation of All Progressives Congress (APC) politicians from Benue State. He said,
“I honestly don’t know how people sleep when workers have not been paid. The workers have to pay rent, buy food, send their children to school and they have health care to take care of.
I assure you that my main interest is all Nigerians in all parts of the country.
Therefore, if anybody who tries to create any impression that I prefer any group across ethnicity or religion let him dare me by being caught red-handed stealing public funds.I will deal with him.”
President Buhari had described the Kano State Governor Umar Ganduje as a “very responsible man” after 3 videos of him allegedly receiving a bribe from unknown contractors surfacing on the internet.
