President Muhammadu Buhari will Friday depart for Addis Ababa, Ethiopia to participate in the 30th Ordinary Session of the Assembly of Heads of State and Government of the African Union, AU.
A press statement by his spokesperson, Femi Adesina, on Thursday says the highlight of the president’s engagements during the visit will be his statement under the historic theme for the AU Summit, namely: “Winning the Fight against Corruption: A Sustainable Path to Africa’s Transformation.”
“This is the first time in the 54-year history of the AU that anti-corruption will be made a theme of the gathering of the regional leaders,” the statement said.
On July 4, 2017 during the 29th Session of the AU, African leaders unanimously endorsed Mr. Buhari to champion the fight against corruption on the continent.
“ The endorsement was in recognition of his personal commitment and widely acclaimed anti-graft drive at the domestic level,” Mr. Adesina said.
