Buhari Spells Out The ‘ABC’ Of fighting Corruption To African Youths

At the launch of the African Youth Congress Against Corruption (AYCAC 2018) which held at the conference centre of the presidential villa, Abuja on Sunday. The President called on the young people in Africa to tackle the menace in their countries.

President Muhammadu Buhari while speaking at the launch also spelt out what he considered as the ABC of fighting corruption.

According to him, “‘A’ stands for Action. Let us all move from talk to action. I urge you to develop tangible projects in your community to instil transparency and accountability of the highest standard.
“I look forward to receiving your Creed of Transparency from this Congress with a view to forwarding the recommendations to the next Summit of the African Union in February next year.

“‘B’ stands for Building Bridges. The youth have a unique opportunity to spearhead the building of inter-generational and cross-sectoral bridges in our various communities.

“Often, fighting corruption requires partnerships with unlikely allies. Be open to exploring constructive partnerships with a wide base of actors. Again, I look forward to all of you joining the Transparency Champions Network that was created following the Regional Youth Consultations.

“‘C’ stands for Culture. So, let us cultivate and equip ourselves with African culture, the right attitude and mindset change that will enable us to stand firmly against corruption. By so doing, accountability and change will begin with you.”

Speaking further, Buhari told the young people to own the fight against corruption.He continued, “To the young people of Africa, this fight against corruption is yours to lead and to win in order to reverse the negative trends of corruption and it’s implications for Africa.

“The Youth of Africa must pool their energies to effectively ensure that our natural and mineral resources remain on the continent for value addition, job and wealth creation as well as to create affordable health-care and quality education for our people. Winning the fight against corruption is very much in your hands!

  1. You want the youths to fight but you still clinging to the post of the president. Rubbish

  2. Oga abeg carry your fight go home we are tired.

  3. Hahahahahahahahaha...... All I have to say is just to laugh. That emoji up there got me rolling on the floor.

  4. The truth about the AYCAC 2018 is that invited guest refused to show up, to save face, a night to the event the state house quickly mobilised youths on the street to come cover up the seats with the promise to pay them.... If not President Buhari would have spoken to an empty hall that day and oh it would have been one fun thing to see but trust 'Nigerian youths' to do anything because of money so they turned up enmasse.

    The EFCC acting chairman was floored when a guest asked him questions he couldn't answer, y'all needed to see how he was beating around the bush for a simple question.

    Champion of anti-corruption indeed!
