Army to partner ICPC in anti-corruption fight
Anti- corruption campaign yesterday got a boost, as the General Officer Commanding (GOC) Second division of the Nigerian Army, Major Gen Laz Ilo, pledged to partner the Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) in the fight against corruption.
Ilo made the pledge when he paid an official visit to the Bodija, Ibadan, Oyo/Ogun State offices of the anti-graft agency on Thursday.
The army boss promised that the 2 division of the Nigerian Army would support the ICPC in its efforts toward wiping-off the menace of corruption in the country, especially in the area of discipline.
The GOC restated that his visit was also to strengthen
the civil-military relations between his formation and the commission, as well as creating room for synergy between the two bodies.
Ilo said: “The primary objective of this visit was in furtherance of the civil-military relations between men of the 2 Division of the Nigerian Army and ICPC, in the spirit of reciprocity, as well as creating a kind of synergy that would promote inter-agency collaboration and cooperation.”
According to him, “The army will continue to work with the ICPC to achieve her objective in fighting corruption and indiscipline in the country. No society can forge ahead without discipline and the agency is at the core of enthroning discipline, hence we pledge to work and collaborate with them.”
