U.S Secretary of State commends anti-corruption fight in Nigeria

United States Secretary of State, John Kerry, has applauded President Buhari for his anti-corruption drive. Speaking at the World Economic Forum holding in Davos, Switzerland, Kerry spoke on corruption and how it threatens global stability, growth and future.
He cited Nigeria as it tackles Boko Haram and how findings from the arms deal investigations showed that corruption stalled the fight against terrorism.
“When Nigeria’s President, Buhari, took office last spring, he inherited a military that was under-paid, underfed and unable to protect the Nigerian people from Boko Haram. One reason is that much of the military budget was finding its way into the pockets of the generals. And just this week, we saw reports that more than 50 people in Nigeria, including former government officials, stole nine billion dollars from the treasury,” he told the delegation.
