The Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offences Commission (ICPC), says it was partnering with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), and well-meaning Nigerians exterminate vote-buying and corruption.
A Board member of the agency, Olugbenga Adeyanju, stated this during a two-day zonal training for executive members of the Anti-Corruption and Transparency Units (ACTUs) of Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) on the National Ethics and Integrity Policy (NEIP), Constituency/ Executive Projects Tracking Initiative (CEPTI), and a round table dialogue on Ethics and Integrity Compliance Scorecard (EICS).*
At the event, which was held at the Conference Hall of the ICPC office, Ibadan, Oyo State, Adeyanju who said that even if corruption could not be totally eradicated, it could be reduced by 99 per cent, stressed that the essence of the gathering was to imbue in the people, through the MDAs, the need to fight corruption and restore “our lost values to improve on our orientation and move the country forward generally.”
