President Buhari seems to have taken a first shot on his intolerance to corruption when he avowed during his inauguration speech that he is for all Nigerians and not for any particular person or group of persons. He said” I belong to everybody, I belong to no body”

President Buhari who commended outgoing President, Goodluck Jonathan for his support during the transition programme said he has set a precedent for others to follow.
He also commended the former president for conceding defeat during the general elections.

Buhari vowed to restructure the local government system in the country in order to tackle existing corruption at the grassroots.

The President who said Boko Haram will be tackled headlong also announced the relocation of Defence Headquarters to Maiduguri, the Borno State capital.

He said the government would investigate the immediate and remote causes of the movement, as well as their sponsors and their international connection.

Buhari also vowed to tackle the issue of epileptic power supply so Nigerians can be peaceful to themselves, even as he said his government would devise better ways to tackle unemployment in the country.
