He also called on African leaders to be united in fighting corruption in order to enhance sustainable economic development in the continent.

Boakai expressed concern at the increased rate of capital flight from the continent while many African countries remained underdeveloped and their youths unemployed.

He urged the leaders to be prudent in the management of the resources of their respective countries for the benefit of all in order to develop sense of belonging among the citizens.

“We should begin to invest in our youths.”
