Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has insisted that only a few countries in the world can claim to have a low level of corruption, but that none is in Africa.

Osinbajo spoke yesterday in Abuja at the launch of the FLAG’IT App by the Akin Fadeyi Foundation.

Represented by the Special Adviser to the President on Rule of Law, Office of the Vice President, Fatima Waziri-Azi, the vice president explained, “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.

According to him, there was a consensus that corruption and illicit financial flows out of Africa relentlessly delay development, worsen practically all human development indices and trap the majority of her people, especially the most vulnerable, in misery and poverty.
