The United State Secretary of State, John Kerry has concluded his visit to Nigeria.
Mr. Kerry’s next stop is Saudi Arabia where he will meet with Foreign Ministers from the six nation Gulf Cooperation Council.
Some key issues he discussed with President Muhammadu Buhari, include the anti-corruption campaign, religious extremism and the violence in the Niger Delta Region.
Nigeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari, on Tuesday told U.S. Secretary of State, Mr John Kerry, that he would institutionalise the anti-corruption crusade to ensure it lasts beyond the current administration.
At a meeting with Mr Kerry in Abuja, the President said his administration “will insist on the standards it is establishing”.
“We are laying down administrative and financial instructions in the public service that must be obeyed.
“Any breach will no longer be acceptable.
“We will retrain our staff, so that they understand the new orientation.
“And those who run afoul of these rules will be prosecuted, no matter who is involved,” he stressed.
