President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday in New York said he was committed entrenching a fully transparent and accountable public revenue management system in Nigeria.

?Addressing the United Nations Plenary Summit for the Adoption of the Post-2015 Development Agenda, Buhari said that his administration was taking steps to improve and streamline internal generation of revenue, and to plug all loopholes that have led to illicit capital flight from Nigeria.

An Aso Rock statement said the President told the gathering that his government was also putting mechanisms in place to prevent oil theft and other criminal practices that are detrimental to Nigeria’s economy.

Applauding the adoption of the Post-2015 Global Development Agenda, President Buhari said that he was very pleased that world leaders had reaffirmed their commitment to sustainable development, international peace and security, and the protection of the planet.
