President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday in Addis Ababa described corruption as one of the greatest evils of our time.
Speaking while formally launching the African Anti-Corruption Year 2018 during the Opening Ceremony of the 30th Ordinary Session of the Assembly of Heads of State and Government of the African Union in the Ethiopian capital, the President declared:
“Corruption is indeed one of the greatest evils of our time. Corruption rewards those who do not play by the rules and also creates a system of distortion and diversion thereby destroying all efforts at constructive, just and fair governance” he said.
Being the Champion of the theme of the 30th AU Summit, namely, “Winning the Fight against Corruption: A Sustainable Path to Africa’s Transformation,” President Buhari thanked his African colleagues for entrusting him with such a noble responsibility.
