By Ikenga Chronicles July 2, 2018

President Muhammadu Buhari has vowed to extend his anti-corruption efforts across the African continent.

Femi Adesina, the President’s media aide, said in a statement that President Buhari made the pledge in his introductory remarks as the champion of the African Union theme of the year, “Winning the Fight against Corruption, A Sustainable Path to Africas Transformation”, in Mauritaina.

He said: “During the last six months, we have engaged in multi-sectoral dialogue with a broad range of actors including parliamentarians, national anti-corruption agencies, civil society, media, youth and women groups and development partners.

“We have convened three (3) different regional Consultative Workshops in line with my campaign programme in an effort to sensitize our people on the evil effects of corruption on our societies.

“These workshops will be extended to other regional blocs as we continue the fight against corruption in a bid to transform our continent.”

Mr. Buhari also informed the gathering of his intention to partner with the AU Chairperson to further push the frontiers of the anti-corruption battle.

The president said he plans to convene the African Youth Congress in Abuja within the next quarter to further boost the anti-corruption fight in the continent.

“We will be working with the Chairman of the African Union, Paul Kagame and the Chairperson of the African Union Commission, to organize an Interactive Dialogue on the theme at the next session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York during the high-level segment,” he added
