Combating corruption in the public sector, ICPC teams together with CCB

Posted by

Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) partnership was established by Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) Chairman Dr. Musa Aliyu.

This was said in a statement made by Mrs. Azuka Ogugua, the ICPC spokesperson, on Friday in Abuja. She emphasized that the program was meant to strengthen relationships and coordinate efforts to eradicate corruption from the public sector in the country.

During a courtesy visit to Mr. Aliyu Kankia, the acting chairman of the CCB, in Abuja, the ICPC chairman and members of the commission’s executive team reportedly decided to work together.

But the head of the ICPC said that the trip was motivated by the commission’s goal to collaborate with key players in order to push the anti-corruption efforts of the federal government forward under his leadership.

President Bola Tinubu’s sincere dedication to combating corruption, according to Aliyu, can be realized through working together with the CCB, which he characterized as Nigeria’s most formidable and consequential anti-corruption body, as acknowledged and referenced in the 1999 Constitution (as amended).

This partnership is an important step in fulfilling the goals set out in the current Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the two organizations.

When working together, the two departments may accomplish a great deal that will benefit the nation.

I am aware that we have an existing memorandum of understanding (MoU), and our goal is to strengthen it and use all available resources to our advantage so that we can work together effectively for the benefit of our country.

“Please don’t hesitate to contact us whenever you require any assistance, and we will also do our best to assist you,” he added.

The acting head of the CCB said that the visit was a positive development because the battle against corruption necessitated understanding and cooperation, just like the ICPC chairman and his colleagues demonstrated.

The visit is a symbol of camaraderie, mutual understanding, and the will to work together to combat corruption.

With respect to “giving and taking,” “conflict of interest,” “asset declaration and assets verification,” and the founding of CCB, Kankia stated that it is a constitutional provision.
