‘It is our hope that the foundation, which has been laid by this administration will be carried forward and continued, as the issue of corruption remains an existential threat to all nations,’ Buhari said.

While reacting to the record-breaking storm that came with devastating landslides in the Southeastern African state of Malawi, Buhari conveyed Nigeria’s condolences to his counterpart, President Lazarus McCarthy Chakwera, the families of victims who lost their lives, and the Government and people of the country.

The Nigerian leader prayed for the repose of the souls of the deceased and quick recovery for the injured.

This was made known in a statement by Garba Shehu, the Senior Special Assistant to the President which was obtained by Africa Today News, New York on Saturday.

The President, however, hoped for early restoration of normalcy in all the areas affected.
