He said the magnitude of the financial mismanagement that has been exposed in the Office of the National Security Adviser under the last administration would be a tip of the iceberg by the time similar exercise is carried out in other government agencies.

Buhari, according to a news item monitored on the Nigerian Television Authority on Thursday, spoke in Nairobi during a meeting he had with members of the Nigerian Community in Kenya.

The President is currently on a three-day official visit to Kenya.

Prominent Nigerians, including ex-NSA, Sambo Dasuki; and the National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, Olisa Metuh, are currently being prosecuted over cases relating to alleged mismanagement of monies meant for arms purchase.

Buhari said although heart-rending, the revelations may not be compared to the corruption that would be exposed by the time his administration commence the probe of other agencies like the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation and the Nigerian Customs Service.

“It (the arms deal)  is heart-rending.  But that is just once source.  You know we have not got to NNPC yet not to talk of Customs,” he said.

The President promised that he would not relent in his effort to eradicate corruption in the country.
