Perception of Anti-Graft War of The Muhammadu Buhari’s Administration: A Study of Salem University Students
Economists have a long-time saying that man by nature is insatiable. This assertion is based on the desire by human beings to gain more wealth. This nature of human beings has made them to be selfish, greedy and corrupt. This study seeks to examine the perception of Salem University Students of Muhammadu Buhari's administration. This study adopted a survey method for data gathering while questionnaire is the instrument for data collection. Two hundred and seventy-four (274) copies of the questionnaire were purposively distributed to the students but 256 were successfully filled and returned. The quantitative method of data analysis was used due to the nature of the study. The findings revealed that President Muhammadu Buhari is not serious about the war against corruption. Furthermore, it was discovered that the anti-corruption war of President Muhammadu Buhari's administration is selective, among other findings. Based on these findings, the study recommends among others that politics should be separated from governance, especially by an administration that wants to fight corruption. Therefore, the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari should give a new face to the anti-corruption war by ensuring that members of the ruling party and others who are corrupt are punished according to the law. Cross-carpeting of politicians from opposition parties to the ruling All Progressives Congress should not be seen as grounds for the pardoning of corrupt politician.
