Nigerians want President Muhammadu Buhari to declare death sentence for public officials found guilty of corrupt practices, according to Buharimeter, a survey by the Centre for Democracy and Development (CDD).
The perception survey was released by CDD on Wednesday.
Signed by Idayat Hassan, director, CDD-West Africa, the organisation said the survey was based on interviews with 5,019 citizens above 18 years across the 36 states of the country.
The fight against corruption is one of three major promises that Buhari hinged his campaigns on—the others being security and improved economy.
The report added that respondents want Buhari to leave, at the end of his second term in office, a legacy of good governance and a stable economy.
