Corruption, Security and Conflict Resolution To Take Centerstage At 30th AU Summit In Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

Ethiopia has reasserted that it is prepared to host the 30th Ordinary Session of the Assembly of Heads of State and Government of the African Union (A.U.). It is expected to kick off on January 22nd, 2018 at AU’s headquarters in Addis Ababa.

Corruption is set to take center stage in deliberations by leaders. The summit will be under the theme: ‘Winning the Fight Against Corruption: A Sustainable Path to Africa’s Transformation.’ The A.U. during its last session appointed Nigerian president Muhammadu Buhari as its anti-corruption ambassador.

While corruption is the key agenda, the summit will also discuss issues like the rampant conflicts across the continent including crises in Libya, DRC, Somalia and South Sudan. African countries have expressed the need for mutual cooperation to address the issues and challenges that the nations face both individual and holistically to ensure prosperity.
