Group urges Senate to pass anti-corruption bill
A Non Governmental Organistion (NGO), Alternative to Corruption and MisGovernance (ACMG) has urged the Senate to pass the anti-corruption bill into law.
The National Coordinator of the group, Steve Aluko-Daniel, who made the call at a press conference, said the lawmakers would incur the wrath of Nigerians if they fail to do so.
According to him, only a law against corruption would put the country on the path of development.
He said: “Corruption is the worst evil that this country has experienced, because it is definitely the major reason this country is economically backward.”
Condemning the level of looting of the nation’s resources, the group said the current economic situation in the country was caused by the country’s leaders.
Aluko-Daniel said the high level of corruption in the country also caused the growing agitations for restructuring and disintegration.
He said the group’s commitment to the democracy and good governance encouraged it to champion the anti-corruption crusade.
According to him, the high index of poverty and illiteracy are worst felt in the northern part of the country, due to corruption and bad governance.
