UN speaks on Buhari’s war against corruption

The UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) says it greatly appreciates the solid commitment shown by President Muhammadu Buhari in confronting corruption in his country and across the African Union.
This is contained in a statement made available to DAILY POST on Friday by David Dadge, UNODC spokesperson.

It recalled that in a July decision, the African Union unanimously endorsed the appointment of President Buhari as its anti-corruption champion.

Buhari is expected to lead an African Union summit on anti-corruption next year.

“This appointment is a welcome recognition of President Buhari’s own efforts against corruption in Nigeria, and a sign of Africa’s determination to rid itself of a crime that blights development and progress”, the statement added

“UNODC remains a staunch ally of Nigeria and the African Union and expresses the hope that fighting corruption will lead to greater economic growth and prosperity for all African people.”

Nigeria, along with dozens of other countries, will take part in the Seventh Session of the Conference of States Parties to the UN Convention Against Corruption, to be held 6-10 November.

The conference brings together over 1,000 representatives of member states, academics, anti-corruption practitioners, and civil society to discuss how to tackle corruption.
