President Muhammadu Buhari says the Federal Government is determined to win the fight against corruption. 

Buhari stated this on Sunday at the opening ceremony of the Peace Forum holding on the sidelines of the centenary celebration of Armistice Day in Paris, the capital of France.

The President told the world leaders that Nigeria has strengthened its laws and institutions to fight corruption, fast-track recovery of stolen assets and punish offenders thereby calling for a renewed commitment from governments and international institutions.

“We must crack down on safe havens for corrupt assets. I also advocate sanctions by professional bodies against transactional middlemen (lawyers, bankers, brokers, public officials, etc.) who facilitate illicit financial flows,” he said.

He also called on the Heads of state and government to cooperate in bringing perpetrators of illicit financial flows across the world.

Buhari believes that if world leaders continue to condone the act, it will encourage stealing of countries resources at the detriment of poor and vulnerable citizens.

“I would like to reiterate that the government of Nigeria remains open and is ever willing to continue to identify and share experiences and strategies to give life to the ideas that will lead to winning the fight against corruption,” he added.

The Paris Peace Forum is an annual event where actors of global governance gather to discuss ways to tackle global challenges and ensuring durable peace.

The event has brought about 70 world leaders and heads of government to Paris and also to commemorate the centenary Armistice celebration in France.
