“Appropriately in attestation to this, the 30th Ordinary Session of the Assembly of Heads of State and Government of the African Union in Ethiopia, not long ago, appreciated the commitments and efforts of President Muhammadu Buhari GCFR at addressing corrupt practices in the Nation and subsequently named him AU anticorruption ambassador. This honour done to Mr. President was achieved because the appointed public officials and their respective agencies entrusted and saddled with the challenging responsibility to implement his anticorruption policy were, indeed, committed towards addressing the blight of corruption in the Nation.

The Attorney General of the Federation and Hon. Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami SAN, stands out in this regard. Since his assumption of office, Malami left no stone unturned to ensure robust momentum of capacities is built around the administration’s anticorruption policy. Today, public perceptions of the Buhari administration’s fight against corruption have improved dramatically as many Nigerians now agreed that the administration is performing very well in fighting corruption and this is a strong indication that the Nation’s orientation towards understanding the challenges of fighting and addressing corrupt practices is changing for the better.

Interestingly, Nigerians have applauded the Treasury Single Account [TSA], Bank Verification Number [BVN], National Identity Number [NIN] and ‘Whistle Blowing’ policies of the Buhari administration which has recorded tremendous achievements by blocking several leakages. Before now, Ministries, Departments and Agencies open multiple accounts to siphon government resources.

Since government has imposed the TSA, visibility funds of government and transparency of government expenditure and accountability has been reestablished. This is in addition towards ensuring that all personnel in the public sector are being captured electronically thereby making it impossible for ghost workers to be incorporated into the pay roll system or structure.”
