How Buhari promises to join Ghana in fight against corruption



President Muhammadu Buhari Tuesday assured his Ghanaian counterpart, Nana Akufo-Addo, of Nigeria’s support to Ghana in tackling the menace of endemic corruption.

The Nigerian President said that with the right leadership and implementation of good public policies, Africa’s drive to eradicate poverty and entrench democracy is on course.

Buhari, who was the special guest of honor at Ghana’s 61st Independence Anniversary celebration at Accra’s Independence Square, noted that the menace of corruption had eaten into the fabric of both countries.

Buhari commended President Akufo-Addo on his achievements in his first year of office, lauding the Ghanian leader’s commitment to fighting corruption and the passing of the Special Prosecutors Bill into law.

“From Nigeria, I have watched closely your achievements, ranging from your ingenious approach to creating jobs for the teeming youths through various initiatives, including the repositioning of agriculture for modern farming, ‘Farming for Jobs and Food’, Senior High School (SHS) free education, One-District-One-Factory, and One-Village-One-Dam as well as the improvement being recorded in the Republic’s macroeconomic indicators,”


Buhari stated. “All these efforts, I am aware, have made Ghana to become a good destination for foreign direct investment just like Nigeria. Accept my congratulations! I congratulate both the government and the Parliament for the quick passage of the Office of the Special Prosecutor Act and its signing into law."

‘‘Your Excellency can be assured that you have a good partner in me as I look forward to any form of collaboration between Nigeria and Ghana in tackling the menace of endemic corruption." ‘‘Given all these public policies, it becomes reassuring that with the right leadership, Africa’s drives to eradicate poverty and to entrench democracy is on course,” he said.
