The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu, said he would tackle the problem of corruption head-on if elected president in the forthcoming election.
Tinubu gave this assurance on Thursday during a consultative forum with the Federation of Construction Industry in Nigeria, FOCI, in Abuja.
He said his administration would back the establishment of a construction bank.
The Lagos State former governor also assured that his government would adopt techniques that would attract, rather than scare away, prospective investors by aiming to eliminate corruption from the Nigerian system.
Tinubu said, “We don’t want to scare away investors of today and tomorrow, but we promise you, we will eliminate corruption. Part of it is that we look at ourselves, too. Not just enforcement but to reduce the propensity for corruption.”
