Fighting corruption doesn’t take a decade – Rwandan President tells Buhari

Rwandan President, Paul Kagame, has commended President Muhammadu Buhari and other African leaders on their fight against corruption.

He made this known while speaking at the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) summit in Abuja,

Kagame advised all leaders present to not only focus on fighting corruption but ti add value and to create wealth.

“There is one of your own [Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala], who wrote a book, titled, Fighting Corruption is Dangerous; so she gave me the book, and as I was looking at the title, I reminded her and said you need to be thinking of writing another book to state that not fighting corruption is even more dangerous.

“This is a fight that can be won; tolerating corruption is a choice, not an inevitability. It is within our power to end it. That is the most important starting point, otherwise, it will be a waste of time to keep talking about it.

“Corruptions does not take decades to eradicate once we decide to break the habit.
“We have to set our sights high, it is not enough to fight corruption just as merely fighting poverty, it is too small an ambition for Africa. We want to create value, we want to create wealth, not merely fighting corruption.”
