Corruption can only be fought with citizens’ participation —EFCC
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has stated that the fight against corruption can only be won when citizens actively participate in the sensitisation process. Stakeholders’ sensitisation, according to the agency, was to rescue the country from the shackles of corruption that has impeded economic growth and development.
EFCC’s Northeast Zonal Head, Mr. Lawrence Iwodi, who disclosed this on Friday, at the African Anti-corruption town hall meeting, held at the Command’s Guest House, Maiduguri, said the commission has renewed efforts to recover the collective wealth allegedly stolen by few elites in corridors of power and other citizens.
He said traditional and religious institutions have great influences on their people to fight corruption to finish.“These institutions are major stakeholders in the quest to combat menace of corruption in the country,” he said. He said the two moral institutions, are however, vital to be overlooked and ensure that they help restore values for integrity, honesty and transparency.
