Festival without Festivities

PRESIDENT Muhammadu Buhari has argued the need for African countries to work collectively to recover stolen assets, if the continent is to get rid of corruption and achieve its full potential.


The President spoke yesterday as the special guest of honour as Nigeria marked the 6th African Union Day of Anti-Corruption with a national dialogue on this year’s theme: “Strategies and Mechanisms for the Transparent Management of COVID-19 funds”.

President Buhari highlighted the fight that Nigeria has fought against corruption since 2015 and lauded the country’s anti-corruption laws and agencies.

He emphasised the need to imbibe the young with ethics and a respect for the Rule of Law and curtail illicit financial flows.
