President Muhammadu Buhari Departs For Addis Ababa

The session is being held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. "I think it is also significant that President Buhari was also asked to champion this because he has been a major inspiration to Africa in frontally combating corruption and bringing positive change towards building a sustainable and prosperous continent". It seems that Rwandan President Paul Kagame will come after President of Guinea Conakry Alpha Conde as a chairman of the union, and observers expect that reforms will be launched during his term.

The WHO said, on the other hand, seven African countries, with less than 10,000 cases of malaria, could reduce transmission to zero by the year 2020.

Songwe went on to say that Africa's development has been in sharp decline over the past several years, and domestically generated resources are expected to play a more prominent role in Africa's development, including in meeting the 2030 sustainable development goals and the aspirations embodied in Agenda 2063. So, they have their plate full and it is going to be deeply and highly engaging for them. "We are looking forward to, perhaps, one of the busiest summits ever in the African Union", Shehu added.

The endorsement was in recognition of his personal commitment and widely acclaimed anti-graft drive at the domestic level.
