    ICPC tasks traditional, religious leaders to promote behavioural change

      The Independent Corrupt Practices And Other Related Offences Commission  (ICPC) on Tuesday in Akure admonished traditional and  religious leader  as well as civil society groups to promote behavioural change to curb corruption in the country.

    Prof. Bolaji Owasanoye, Chairman, ICPC, who was represented by AIG Olugbenga Adeyanju (Rtd.), a member of the commission board, gave the admonition at a sensitisation dialogue with traditional rulers, religious leaders and community-based civil society groups.

    The sensitisation dialogue was on “Behavioural Change  National Ethics and Integrity Policy(NEIP), Constituency & Executive Projects Tracking Initiative (CEPTI)“.

    Owasanoye explained that it had become imperative for traditional and religious leaders and other stakeholders to initiate and sustain behavioural change among the people.

    According to him, one will be shocked to realise the extent to which corruption has shortchanged all of us, especially the ordinary people.

    “I believe this realisation will underscore why every core value of ethics and integrity policy should be imbibed, practised and upheld by all.

    “You as leaders should deepen your partnership with the ICPC in diminishing corruption and using your good offices in promoting ethics, values and behavioural change and building a better Nigeria for all of us.

    “As religious leaders, you, our pastors and Imams, are not only spirituals guides but also moral compasses by which we measure the positive growth or otherwise of the society.

    “You have followership, you have influence and command respect.

    Use these to bring about an enduring positive behavioural change among our people.

    “Nigerians are good people, let not the actions and attitude of a few bad eggs among us give us all a bad name,” he said.

    The ICPC chairman called on all the stakeholders to organise events in their collective desire to enthrone a Nigeria glowing with integrity, transparency and accountability in all spheres.

    Earlier, Mr Kupolati Kayode, Resident Anti-Corruption Commissioner (RACC) in Ondo State, had said that the dialogue was aimed at enthroning behavioral change and socio-economic rebirth in the society.

    Kayode, who said that ICPC could not do the work effectively without the cooperation and inputs of all stakeholders, said the sensitisation would help in spreading the anti-corruption message and also improve service delivery to Nigeria and Nigerians.

    “The people who perpetrate these acts are not aliens, they are our sons and daughters, followers, legislators, civil servants and contractors.

    “The commission, therefore, needs your full support in the onerous fight against corruption in our nation by joining hands with the ICPC in this fight,” he said.

    The Deji of Akure Kingdom, Oba Aladetoyinbo Ogunlade, who is also State Chairman, Council of Traditional Rulers, was represented by the Osemawe of Ondo Kingdom, Oba Victor Kiladejo.

    He expressed appreciation to the ICPC for the initiative, saying it would go a long way to achieve the desired results.

    Ogunlade implored the commission and government to always carry the traditional institution along in order to stem corruption in the society.

    “In our respective communities, there is need for us to come together so that traditional institutions will be proactive by working hand-in-hand with the government to fight corruption in the society,” he said.

    One of the participants, Alhaji Yusuf Agbesinga, the Imam of Gaga Muslim Community in Akure, also called on the commission to create more awareness to tackle the menace of corruption.

    He said both the leaders and the led were corrupt.

    “If we want corruption to be reduced in our society, our government needs to engage more youths by employing them while both the parents and guardians should teach their children and wards the way of God,” he said.

    Also, Mr Olumuyiwa Olawolu, Are Agbe-Asaga of Ondo State, implored government to include traditionalists among those administering the oath of allegiance for office holders so that they could take the oath through “ogun and others traditional gods.

    “If we do this, I am sure corruption will become a thing of the past in the country.

    “If we want to fight and curb corruption, we must involve traditionalists while our leaders and office holders take oath of office through ogun, sango and others,” he said.

    Police train personnel, others on election management in South-West

    The Nigeria Police Force says it has commenced training for its officers, other security agencies and stakeholders in South-West on election management for peaceful conduct of the 2023 general elections.

    The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the three-day workshop, which started on Tuesday in Ibadan, was organised by the police, in collaboration with Solar Consult Company Ltd. Theme of the workshop is: “2023 General Elections: Enhancing National Security Capacity for a Secured and Credible Electoral Process in Nigeria.

    ” NAN reports that present at the event were representatives of NSCDC, Immigration, NDLEA, Army, INEC officials, IPAC, religious leaders and traditional rulers.

    A former Inspector-General of Police, Solomon Arase, who facilitated the programme, said that similar workshop was held in Kano, Enugu, Benin and Maiduguri with the final being held in South-West geo-political zone.

    Arase said the workshop was to sharpen the security knowledge and capacity of security agencies that would participate in the conduct of 2023 general elections.

    He said the training was necessitated by the realisation of less professional conduct and poor coordination of law enforcement agencies during the past elections, as well as concerns raised by people within and outside Nigeria on the past elections.

    Foundation awards N500, 000 each to 40 civil servants

    The Emily AIG Imoukhuede Foundation in on Thursday awarded 40 civil servants with N500, 000 cash each, in fulfillment of its pledge made during 2022 Civil Service Week Celebration.

    The News Agency of Nigeria recalled that the foundation had during the 2022 civil device week celebration, pledged to give the award to selected civil servants who performed creditably well in their different MDAs. NAN also reports that Mr Aigboje Aig-Imoukhuede, Chairman of AIG Imoukhuede Foundation, a major partner with the office of the HOCSF made the pledge of N500, 000 cash award during the service week to civil servants who distinguished themselves in their services.

    AIG Imoukhuede is a non--mpartisan organisation with a mandate to champion the reform of the Nigerian economy into an open, private sector-led economy that is globally competitive on a sustainable basis.

    Speaking at the award ceremony in Abuja, Mr Aig-Imoukhuede expressed delight over the present crop of civil servants in Nigeria with the innovative ideas initiated by the present administration.

    Aig-Imoukhuede said the gesture became imperative and also served as a mark of honour to his late mother, Mrs Emily Aig-Imoukhuede, who was in her life time, an active civil servants before she retired from the service she rendered to her father land.

    “Most worthy distinguished recipients of 2022 awardees, my friends in government, I am really glad to be here today.

    Out of many things we have to fulfill, of course the principal thing today is to fulfill the pledge I made during the June 2022 civil service week celebration.

    ” The pledge and commitment I made on behalf of the AIG Imoukhuede Foundation when you all received your national recognition award during 2022 service week, by way of presenting to each of you the N500,000 cash ward in appreciation of excellent works you have done, ” he explained.

    According to him, the Imoukhuede Foundation recognises how critical public servant is to actualising the dreams of any nation and the foundation has recognised public servants as one of its major partners.

    He said as a son to a former civil servant, he had regarded how his parents were being regarded during their days in the course of their service to the nation.

    According to him, public servants are one of the most important groups, but less recognised in spite of their imminent contributions to the growth and economy of the country.

    In her remarks, Head of the Civil Service of the Federation (HOCSF), Dr Folasade Yemi-Esan, expressed pleasure to witnessing such a gesture by her office with private partner.

    Yemi-Esan said it was unusual for the office of the HOCSF to celebrate civil servants with cash award during any annual civil service week occasion.

    “That is why I am really excited today that 40 civil servants have excelled at their duty post and each one of them has received half a million naira and they have their alert to prove that the money has actually gotten to their accounts.

    ” I can only say a big thank you to my big brother Aig-Imoukhuede for this and for putting smiles on the faces of the civil servants once again,” she said.

    According to her, the gesture will motivate the civil servants to perform better than they did.

    The HOS, however, advised the recipients to make good use of the money and not to relent in their efforts as the gesture could motivate them more in their services to the country.

    Meanwhile, Mr Babatunde Aina, Director (Governance) Cabinet Affairs, office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, and who is one of the recipients, expressed delight over the gesture by the foundation and the Federal Government through office of the HOCSF.

    “I can say categorically that the AIG Imoukhuede Foundation has been in the public in the forefront of driving excellence in the public service.

    “The foundation has been into a number of initiatives and this of us in the office of SGF can testify to this.

    And we appreciate what you are doing sir.

    Authority to enforce traffic rules in Katsina-Official

    Authority to enforce traffic rules in Katsina-Official AThe newly established Katsina State Safety and Road Traffic Authority (KASROTA), says it will soon commence the enforcement of road traffic rules and regulations in the state.  

    Its Director-General(DG), retired AIG Danlami Yar’adua disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria on Tuesday in Katsina.  

    Yar’adua, therefore, appealed to motorists across the state to desist from violating road traffic rules and regulations to avoid being sanctioned.  

    “Motorcycle and tricycle riders should also avoid overload because it is an offence to do so.

    “We have met with their leadership to inform them about the new development and none of them should be found wanting,” the DG said.   

    He also advised hawkers along major roads and traders occupying walkways to desist from that before the commencement of the enforcement of the law.  

    According to the KASROTA DG, the authority has provided punishment for the defaulters, including fines from N5,000 and above, saying about 100 offences were mentioned in their law.  

    The retired AIG said that Gov. Aminu Masari has approved their request for the procurement of all the necessary equipment and facilities needed by the authority.  

    He said that some of the KASROTA officials have been placed in some strategic locations to control traffic before the authority fully begins operations.  

    “If you notice, there are some traders or hawkers that turned walkways into their places of business, it is an offence, we are calling on them to stop before we start enforcement.  

    “Also, those hawkers at junctions and roundabouts causing obstructions and accidents, should stop it because it’s an offence in the law that established KASROTA.   

    “We are also calling on the motorists with the habit of double parking and preventing other vehicles passage, to kindly end it before measures  are taken against them,” he warned.   

    Yar’adua decried that some traders had turned the roads to places of business, warning, ”we will meet their leaders before taking serious measures  on them.

    “By God’s grace, when our operation begins fully, all these attitudes will come to an end, if they don’t stop willingly, they will stop by force.  

    “We are going to arrest any defaulter and fine them.

    All these road obstructions caused by the hawkers, traders, motorists, tricycle and motorcycle riders should be stopped.   

    “We are also calling on the members of the public to avoid keeping sands or blocks on the roads when undertaking constructions, because it is obstructing passage.  

    “But, some still do that.

    We are calling on them to stop such nefarious acts henceforth before we embark on serious enforcement of the law on them,” Yar’adua warned.

    Force Public Relations Officer, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, stated in Abuja on Monday that Baba consequently directed all supervising Commissioners of Police and Commanders to ensure strict supervision of their personnel.

    Baba warned that further incidences of brutality or extortion would be viewed strictly.

    He ordered a holistic overhauling of the Intelligence Response Team, the Special Tactical Squad, and the Special Weapons and Tactics Units.

    He directed the Assistant Inspector-General of Police (AIG) in charge of the Force Intelligence Bureau to supervise the three units to ensure their operations were professional and productive.

    Baba said the AIG would ensure that the operation of the units did not infringe on the fundamental rights of members of the public.

    He added that the overhauling was to ensure that the operations of the units were in tandem with the purpose for which they were created.

    He said the current overhauling would improve the effectiveness of the units and rid them of negative elements who deviated from the standard operating procedure of the units.

    Baba added that the overhauling was also to ensure maximum effectiveness and output in line with the mandate of the current administration of the force and public safety.

    The police boss announced the dismissal of a Police Constable, Mr Liyomo Okoi with Force No. 524503, attached to Ekori Divisional Headquarters in Cross River for gross misconduct.

    He said the misconduct of the dismissed officer was recorded in a viral video circulated in the social media on July 31. Baba said the officer, whose dismissal was with immediate effect was recorded flogging a man with a machete.

    The I-G reiterated his commitment to ethical regeneration and restoration of professional standard and enhancement of the anti-corruption drive with dedication to entrenching human rights-driven policing.
