ICPC URGES NIGERIANS TO UNITE IN THE FIGHT AGAINST CORRUPTION
The Independent Corrupt Practices Commission (ICPC) has urged Nigerians to unite in the fight against corruption and other sharp practices in the country.
Prof. Bolaji Owasanoye made the call during a courtesy visit by a delegation of the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) led by its Managing Director, Mr Buki Ponle, to the commission’s headquarters in Abuja.
Owasanoye, who condemned the widespread perception of the fight against corruption from tribal, religious or political perspectives, called for proper advocacy and sensitisation to correct the misconception.
The anti-graft chief emphasised the critical role of the media in disseminating information as well as engaging people positively on the good intention of government.
Owasanoye gave an assurance of his willingness to work in partnership with the media in achieving the desired change and victory over corruption.
