It Doesn't Take Decades To Fight Corruption, Rwandan President Tells Buhari by engreo(m): 6:52am On Jun 12
Create value, create wealth, not merely fight corruption

Rwandan President, Paul Kagame, says President Muhammadu Buhari and other African leaders must refocus their efforts and passion on creating value, wealth and should stop fighting corruption endlessly.

Speaking at the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) summit in Abuja, Kagame congratulated Buhari on his victory at the poll and said Nigeria must share resources equitably, so everyone can join the fight against corruption.

He also called on the president and other attendees to add value, create wealth, while fighting corruption, and not merely to fight corruption.

“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.”

Kagame said Buhari is AU anti-corruption champion, appreciating the president for his drive against corruption.

“President Buhari, I wish to give you our very warm congratulations on your re-election and best wishes for the entire Nigerian people, on the road ahead,” Kagame said.

“I also want to mention here, that President Buhari is AU (African Union) champion in the fight against corruption, and we thank you.”

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 particular cultures. 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 sources and beneficiaries of corruptions are outside of Africa”.

I love Paul Kagame. Intelligent, bold and apt.

He is undoubtedly the poster boy for the kind of leaders African countries are in dire need of.

I can imagine all the itchy bodies and uneasy faces while he spoke undecided

By the look of things, even if decades is given to buhari he won't finish fighting corruption.

Anyway, buhari is a scammer and a fraudster!
He can't deceive the majority and wise Nigerians.

Charity they say begins at home, President Kagame to me is the kind of man every African country needs. Fighting corruption isn't an easy task, but for one to truly fight corruption, he need to first make sure there is no corruption happening around him. If I were the president c in c, and I'm determined to fight corruption I would first use a close ally of mine to set an example as to what would happen to corrupt people. Just like a fat gym instructor who is helping others get in shape but he himself isn't any were near being in shape.
Other countries are moving forward in science and all others, but over here we are reducing jamb score to 160.
God help us

Osetigo!

Everyday you claim you are fighting corruption, yet you keep appointing only people from your tribe into key government positions, is that not the biggest corruption

Tribalism and religious extremism are the mother & father of corruption in Africa, and they are the biggest forms of leadership corruption in Africa!

Buhari is the champion of tribalism & religious extremism!

The problem with Nigeria is majority of Nigerians are unknowingly mad, and psychologically deficient to know what bad leadership is.

Their major concern is whether their tribesman or religious person is in government, whether he/she performs as a leader is not important to majority of Nigerians and that is why Nigeria need total restructuring to reduce the power at the center and make Nigerian government function as small regional government units focused on bettering their regions with mostly same tribes and religious doctrines to reduce sabotage and negligence or marginalization.

If restructuring to make Nigeria a regional government system can't work, then peaceful division of Nigeria remains the only best way to Savage Nigeria

This man rules a country that was torn apart by genocide.
This man rules a country that does not have as much natural resources as Nigeria
This man rules a country that is poorer than Nigeria.
In Nigeria there are at least 2 presidents and yet they cannot reason well because of greed, avarice and the desire to hold on to power at all cost.

My problem is with my people the masses. We are too docile and selfish and find it hard to hold our political leaders accountable. We are resting on our oars not knowing that the future of our unborn children in this country is more than bleak.
They claim to fight corruption but the country is becoming a looting basket for all.

Well, welcome to another four years of hardship, nepotism and further economic downturn sad

This is what we are saying.... Fighting corruption without adding value to citizens is worst than corruption itself

Buhari and his APC zombies dont even understand the meaning of adding value ....

The problem with fighting corruption in Nigeria is that if someone says they should prosecute this person, the person's tribespeople and fellow religionists will make threats, subtle and overt...to the national peace....or will go on an allegation spree alleging that 'It's all selective'....and at the end of the day, no one gets prosecuted, everyone is happy, and the corruption continues.....and we continue suffering.

Sad.

Overall, we think he is a great guy.
He is doing well for his country.
Especially after the Rwanda genocide.

As president, Kagame has prioritized national development, launching a programme to develop Rwanda as a middle-income country by 2020 (Vision 2020). As of 2013, the country is developing strongly on key indicators, including health care and education; annual growth between 2004 and 2010 averaged 8% per year. Kagame has had mostly good relations with the East African Community and the United States.
