Acting President Yemi Osinbajo has said the Federal Government will remain resolute in its fight against corruption in spite of the daunting challenges.
Osinbajo said this in Lagos at the 5th Annual Christopher Kolade Lecture on Business Integrity titled, Prevention is better than Cure even on the Issue of Corruption.
The lecture was organised by the Integrity Organisation Limited, an anti-corruption, research and advocacy organisation concerned with issues of public accountability and transparency.

“We have experienced and continued to experience that but the antidote is single minded commitment.
“And I must say that we are permitted to ensure that we will continue to fight against corruption
