According to Dr. Akinwuni Adesina, corruption is not an African problem. This was said by Adesina in a statement issued on Saturday in Abuja in the news media.

He asserts that what matters is to keep enhancing accountability, transparency, and the usage of public funds.

“The worldwide financial meltdown that brought the world to an end in 2008, was not in Africa,”

“You have people falsifying records in the banking sector in Europe, not in Africa. Africa does not have a corruption problem.

The problem is that to state there isn’t any would be inaccurate. The utilization of public resources, accountability, and transparency must all be improved going forward.

Adesina claims that he learned about Eritrea’s zero percent corruption rate during his first trip there.
