The President, the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), has given the assurance that with the various reforms by his regime, very soon, all government financial transactions will be done in the open.

Buhari gave this assurance on Tuesday in Kaduna at the Passing-Out Parade of Detective Inspector Course Five of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

A State House statement by his media aide, Mallam Garba Shehu, quoted Buhari as saying, “My resolve is to ensure that the reforms are deepened such that there will be no hiding place for corrupt persons and proceeds of corruption. My aim is to ensure that no government financial transaction is done in secret and all are subjected to public scrutiny.

“The objective of this administration is to institute a level of transparency in governance through mainly information technology platforms. Just as advanced democracies and some developing countries, I am determined that within a short period, citizens would be able to follow core government operations online,”
