“I’m aware of the terms by my opponent to hang the tag of corruption on the necks of my government and myself despite all the manifested effort being made to deal with the phenomenon of corruption. I just have one simple answer for them, it won’t work.

“I did not come into public life to enrich myself. So far any alleged act of corruption levelled against my appointees have been investigated by independent bodies such as CHRAJ, CID and some cases by parliament itself,” he said.
