Buhari reads riot act to his family ahead of May 29th?

According to Daily Trust...the President-elect, General Muhammadu Buhari (rtd) has sounded a note of warning to his family members that he will not use his powers as president to protect any of them who broke the law, as he is set to assume the leadership of the country.
General Buhari addressed the members of the family, comprising of his children and other extended family members who look up to him, after he won the March 28 presidential election. He called for the solemn assembly in between his various meetings with well-wishers from various parts of the country who thronged his country home in order to congratulate him.
According to the member who spoke to our reporter, Buhari  made it very clear to his family that he would not protect them if they violated the country’s law, harping on the anti-corruption mantra, which is one of the reasons why he received massive votes during the presidential polls.
Sunday Trust learnt further that he admonished his family members to seek meaningful means of earning a living, giving his life story as an example of how one could start life from a humble beginning and achieve great success in life.
The president warned them against engaging in acts that would tarnish the image of the incoming administration, adding that family members who have no  legitimate business or who are not invited to the Aso Rock would be allowed  into the Presidential Villa.
He also told them that he would not condone laziness from any member of the family. He advised them to work hard to earn a living, saying he worked very hard to become what he is today. 
He reminded them that Nigeria is a great country with numerous opportunities, adding that only the lazy ones would wallow in poverty.
As a military head of state, General Buhari became popular for his fight against corruption through the instrument of War Against Indiscipline. During that regime, a lot of corrupt Nigerians were arrested and jailed.
