BE VERY AFRAID: Jonathan says no one will be spared in his fight against corruption

President Goodluck Jonathan has said no culprit, no matter how highly placed, will escape the wrath of his administration in the fight against corruption.

He described corruption as a monster that must be tackled at all costs.

The President said this at the graduation ceremony of the Senior Executive Course No 34, 2012 of the National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies, Kuru, near Jos on Saturday.

He said his government was determined to enthrone and sustain good governance, accountability, transparency and the rule of law.

Jonathan said, “These objectives are at the heart of our transformation agenda. Our efforts are yielding positive results. At least for once, we should be proud to say we have gotten our electoral system right.

“Credible elections are the stepping stone for good governance. I am glad that we have made tremendous progress in the key areas of governance. We are equally making progress in other sectors.

“We are vigorously fighting the endemic corruption at all levels and in all sectors of our country. I can assure you that there will be no sacred cows. Whoever is found to have transgressed will be made to face the full wrath of the law,” he said.
