He said, “This country’s is truly Africa’s greatest engine protection and this is how we see Nigeria. Overcoming corruption has 4 key point in my own opinion: Culture , Responsibility, Accountability and effectiveness”-

“We have to set our sights high. It is not enough to “fight corruption” just as merely “fighting poverty” is too small an ambition for Africa. We want to create value and wealth not merely fighting corruption. Corruption does not take decades to eradicate. Huge gains can be made relatively quickly, once we decide to break the habit. That brings me to responsibility.”
