PRESIDENT Muhammadu Buhari on Saturday said that massive corruption being perpetrated especially in Africa has created a huge governance deficit.
President Buhari said such ugly development has created negative consequences that have worsened the socioeconomic and political situation in Africa.
In a letter to South Africa’s President, Cyril Ramaphosa, Chairman of African Union, as the continent celebrates Anti-Corruption Day, July 11, 2020, the President urged African leaders to ensure the immediate actualization of the Common African Position on Assets Recovery (CAPAR),.
President Buhari according to a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Chief Femi Adesina, asked for a re-commitment to the anti-corruption war by leaders on the continent to engender an “integrated, prosperous and peaceful Africa, driven by its own citizens, representing a dynamic force in the international arena.”
