President Muhammadu Buhari would lead Nigerian delegation to the 30th Ordinary Session of Assembly of African Union Heads of State and Government summit to hold on January 28 and 29 in Addis Ababa.

The Spokesman, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Dr Tiwatope Elias-Fatile, disclosed this to newsmen in Abuja.

Elias-Fatile said the summit is tagged,“Winning the Fight Against Corruption: A Sustainable Path to Africa’s Transformation.”

He added that the 2017 Ordinary Session on Anti-Corruption endorsed Buhari to champion AU anti-corruption for 2018, adding that the endorsement was as a result of the remarkable achievements recorded by the Buhari-led administration against corruption.

“It is going to be very engaging and a defining moment for Nigeria as Africa and the global community will be looking up to Nigeria to provide a commitment and the needed leadership.

“This is to surmount one of the major obstacles that is hindering Africa’s transformation and economic development which is corruption,” he said.

The spokeman added that President Buhari would also deliver a brief declaration, followed by the official unveiling of the logo of “Project 2018.”

He said that there would be a meeting of Organisation of African First Ladies against HIV/AIDS and Joint African Union Commission Roll Back Malaria High Level Briefing, among others at the event.
