President Muhammadu Buhari has assured Nigerian youths that his ongoing anti-corruption crusade would ultimately provide a better future for them.

This assurance was conveyed by presidential spokesman, Femi Adesina on Wednesday when on behalf of the president, he addressed a group of students under the aegis of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) who marched to the Presidential Villa to pledge their support for government’s anti-corruption campaign.



In responding to the demands of the group, Adesina said: “everything you have asked for are the things that will make for a good country, and what we are after is a good country, a country where our youths can have a future and a hope.

“We are totally committed to building  a country where our youths can realize their full potential. You can be assured that your welfare and well-being are topmost in our minds and very soon you will see the things we have promised come to fruition.

“During the campaigns, change was our slogan, but today it is no longer a mere slogan, it is now a reality and we will see it in every facet of our lives.

“The youths will feel it, the adults will feel it and old people will feel it and we will get the country of our dreams”.

Adesina later received a document listing the demands and addressed to Buhari from the NANS President, Tijani Usman Shehu; and he promised that the President will look into their requests.

In his remarks, Shehu said the students were united against corruption, cyber crime, prostitution, human trafficking, drug abuse and other anti-social vices.

“Nigerian students demand that our future must be secured and we strongly believe in the President’s zero tolerance for corruption”, he said.
