President Muhammadu Buhari says it is the responsibility of his government to imprison those who enrich themselves at the expense of the country.

Buhari said this at the presidential rally of the All Progressives Congress (APC)  in Lagos on Saturday.

He said if re-elected, he would continue the fight against corruption and fulfill all the promises he made in 2015.

“I assure you, whoever is entrusted with public property, his primary responsibility is to account for it,” he said.

“If the proper thing is not done, we will eventually get a hold of them, take away what they have stolen and get them in prison. This is our duty, this is our responsibility and I assure you we will continue to do it.

“I assure you that the promises we made in 2015, based on which you elected us, we’ve made tremendous progress and I have mentioned through others what the administration is doing on security, economy and fighting corruption.”
