Nigeria Has No Relationship With Poverty – Buhari

President Mohammadu Buhari has said that Nigerians have no relationship with poverty given the enormous resources which God has endowed the country with.

To this end, he has promised to take appropriate measures to stamp out corruption and reposition Nigeria as a prosperous nation that can adequately cater for its citizens.

The President made the assertion yesterday at the opening of the 45th Annual Conference of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria (ICAN) in Abuja.

The President, who was represented by the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Finance, Mrs. Anastasia Nwaobia blamed the poverty in the land on mis-governance and lack of transparency.

Meanwhile, former Minister of State for Finance, Mr. Remi Babalola, has recommended compulsory asset declaration for all principal officers in the executive arm of government as a means of checking the menace of endemic corruption in the country.
