ICPC calls for strict law enforcement to tackle corruption

By Isaiah Eka

ICPC Chairman Professor Bolaji Owansanoye said effective law enforcement would fight corruption.

He made this statement in a message he sent during a one-day dialogue between South-South stakeholders on the implementation of the national ethics and integrity policy that was held Tuesday in Uyo.

The policy was launched by President Muhammadu Buhari on August 28, 2020.

“The national ethics and integrity policy is a child of necessity. It was designed and delivered out of the urgent need to resurrect and rejuvenate our lost values ​​of integrity and honesty as a nation.

“The values ​​of truth, nationalism and respect for human dignity of yesteryear have been lost to us; this is why corruption has become so prevalent in society.

“It is in recognition of the central role played by the reorientation of values ​​in the fight against corruption that ICPC adopted the National Ethics and Integrity Policy,” said Owasanoye representative Dr Grace Chinda. .

Dr Chinda is a member of the South-South Council of ICPC.

She said that ICPC adopted the policy in collaboration with the Office of the Secretary of the Federation Government and noted that truthfulness, nationalism and respect for humanity were part of Nigerian society in the past.

She blamed corruption on the vanishing values ​​of truth, nationalism and respect for humanity.

She said Nigeria has no shortage of anti-corruption laws, but needs the implementation of effective enforcement based on well-designed and enforceable standard operating procedures.

“It is a fact that Nigeria has no shortage of laws and policies aimed at combating corruption and indiscipline. What may be missing is effective implementation and enforcement based on well-designed and enforceable standard operating procedures.

“It is the difference between the national ethics and integrity policy and previous similar policies that have become moribund and obsolete,” she said.

Dr Chinda expressed hope that the policy would resuscitate the nation’s lost values ​​of honesty and integrity.

In a message delivered earlier by Akwa Ibom’s director of the National Guidance Agency, Mr. Enoh Uyoh, the agency’s general manager, Dr. Garba Abari, noted that for a nation to develop , there must be national values ​​and ethics. (NAA)
