Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has reiterated that the ongoing anti-corruption war would be so thorough that even associates and friends of President Muhammadu Buhari would not be spared.
He noted that the President had zero tolerance for corruption and would never shield his friends from probe.
Speaking during a special interview session with some journalists at the State House, Abuja on Tuesday, the Vice President said: “The major drain on the country’s resources is corruption. No one would be spared in the fight against corruption because, even the close friends of the President know that they will not be spared; he will not cover for them. Fighting corruption is a priority”.
Osinbajo also disclosed that 200,000 unemployed graduates had been selected to be engaged by the federal government under the N-power jobs Programme.
“We expect that before the end of the month, we will engage 200, 000 out of the 500,000 unemployed graduates the Buhari administration plans to hire in the N-Power jobs programme,” he said.
