He said that his administration had zero tolerance for corruption.

According to him, corruption was the major impediment to the growth of Nigeria’s economy.

“We must shun corruption and fight at all levels,’’ he ordered the new police officers.

He also called on the police officers to uphold the ethics and regulation of their profession and not be allowed to be influenced in any way.

Buhari warned that anyone found wanting would be disciplined according to extant laws.
