United State Secretary of State, John Kerry spoke on President Muhammadu Buhari’s anti-corruption war at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
According to PM NEWS, he said, ”It has been reported that over 50 people including government officials stole over $9billion in Nigeria. Corruption costs global economy more than a trillion dollars a year and complicates every security, diplomatic, social priority”.
”In far too many countries, plain rank corruption has generated such powerful headwinds that local economies just tread water. Today, corruption has grown at an alarming pace and threatens global growth, global stability, indeed the global future. There is absolutely nothing more demoralizing, disempowering to any citizen than the belief the system is rigged against them. Corruption is a radicalizer because it destroys faith in legitimate authority.”
