Also speaking, the programme coordinator for Youth Initiative for Advocacy Growth and Advancement (YIAGA), Ibrahim Faruk said the anti-corruption fight seems to be led by the government and rarely do youths embark against the fight.

The representative of Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI), Ovo Otarie while also speaking at the event said it is important to work with the youths at the forefront of the campaign as they represent about 60% of the population in Africa.
