‘All African countries are corrupt’ - Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo

‘All African countries are corrupt’ - Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo (Updated: 3 years ago)


Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has stated that all African countries are corrupt and only few countries in the world can boast of not being corrupt.

Yemi Osinbajo who was represented by the Special Adviser to the President on Rule of Law, Office of the Vice President, Fatima Waziri-Azi at the launch of the FLAG’IT App said that corruption and illicit financial flows out of Africa has led to poverty and lack of development witnessed across the continent.

“The 2019 Global Corruption Barometer on African citizens’ views and experiences of corruption highlights that while most of the people surveyed in 35 countries felt that corruption had increased in their country, a majority equally felt that they, as citizens, could make a difference in the fight against corruption.

“Only a few countries in the world can claim to have a low level of corruption and none of these countries is in Africa.

“It doesn’t matter how much revenue a country generates or how transformed it is or how progressive its plans, corruption will ensure that majority of the people do not benefit from whatever gains are made, which is why despite the highest oil revenues in our history, debt doubled and poverty figures rose. This is why the major pillar of this administration’s socio-economic agenda is the fight against corruption” he said.
