As a young Moroccan woman who aspires to participate in the management of public affairs in my own country, I often wondered: what would prevent me from becoming a corrupt political leader? What pre-disposes so many transparent young individuals to become corruptible decision-makers? How to ensure that citizens will not abuse entrusted power for private gain? I could not obtain a complete and satisfying answer to these questions. However, my engagement in a consultancy project with Transparency International gave me some elements of answer. It is particularly during my visit to Niger that I got the most insightful perspective. Indeed, I got the chance to interview Mrs. Salifou Fatimata Bazèye; one of the most powerful women in the country. In addition to her achievements as the president of the Constitutional Court, her integrity made her an icon for the promotion of rule of law. When I asked her: What made you resist to corruption? She answered: My values.
