UN to spend $100m on Nigeria to fight corruption

The Secretary-General, UN Office on Drugs and Crimes (UNODC), Mr. Yury Fedotov, has revealed that the intergovernmental organisation will spend $100m to stop corruption, drug trafficking, and terrorism in Nigeria.

Mr. Fedotov, who is on a two-day official visit to Nigeria, made this known in Abuja on Wednesday.

While commending President Buhari’s anti-corruption war, Mr. Fedotov pledged UNODC’s support to its success.

According to him: “All our programmes put together amount to $100m. So, it makes Nigeria one of the largest recipients of assistance of international community through the UN Office on Drugs and Crimes.

“I think the commitment of President Buhari to eradicate corruption is a very important asset for us in UNODC as the guardian of the UN Convention against Corruption.

“Anti-corruption is a very important and topical issue, which Nigeria can count on the organisation’s support.”
