Buhari to flag off 3rd Nat anti-corruption marathon December 9

President Muhammadu Buhari is expected to flag off the 3rd National Anti-corruption half marathon race/National Youth and Students Summit on Anti-corruption and Drug Abuse in Abuja on December 9, 2021.

Mr Jacob Onu, the national coordinator of the National Anti-Corruption Marathon Race, who disclosed this to newsmen in Abuja said no fewer than 50 elite distance runners have already registered to participate in the race which will see the winners of the male and female categories smile to banks with N1, 000,000-star prize money each.

He said the race, which would hold 48 hours after the United Nations International Anti-Corruption Day, was designed to create awareness of President Buhari’s fight against corruption.

“As you are aware, due to the Pandemic experience worldwide the second edition of the Race was organised last two years precisely December 9th which is the United Nations (UN) International Day on Anti-Corruption.

“It was a huge success in that both winners and losers smiled home after the outing that enshrined their names on the records as committed corruption fighters besides the winners taking home their cash prizes in millions of Naira.

“We, therefore, worked harder to not only build on the success but also improve. By doing so, we got more corporate organizations, public and private sectors, individuals and groups involved in the planning and organization of this 3rd edition.

“On Thursday, December 9, 2021, by 7:00 am, the 3rd edition is expected to be flagged off by our country’s number one citizen President Buhari, including other prominent citizens of our dear Nation to commemorate this year’s UN International Day on Anti-Corruption 2021,” he said.
