President Paul Kagame of Rwanda, has told African learners fighting corruption that their battle will fail if they shun concert end efforts at creating wealth.
He told Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari at the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) summit in Abuja on Tuesday, that Nigeria must share resources equitably, so everyone can join the fight against corruption.
Kagame said corruption must be fought from top to bottom, using four key principles: “culture, responsibility, accountability and effectiveness”.
“We must discard the myth that corruption is endemic to a particular culture. corruption is a universal weakness, not an African one, and it is not part of our destiny as a continent.
He said research has shown that the biggest beneficiaries of corruptions are outside Africa.
