ICPC, CISLAC, others partner to eradicate corruption
The Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offences (ICPC), the Civil Society Legislative Advocacy Centre (CISLAC) and other civil society groups rose from a one-day meeting yesterday, expressing worry over the level of corruption, including those who aid the practice in the country.
Speaking yesterday at the event held at RockView Hotels, Owerri, Imo State, stakeholders condemned cases of police extortion of drivers on the road and called for concerted efforts to beam searchlight on the reports made against such allegations.
In her opening speech, the Legal Officer, CISLAC, Miss. Bathsheba Tagwai said the organisation is a non-profit making one, which has the mandate to work against corruption, partnering anti-graft agencies, organisations and individuals to achieve results.
Head, Public Enlightenment Unit, ICPC Imo and Abia State offices, Chinwe Nwaozu lauded the partnership with CISLAC, regretting that corruption as mainly exemplified by public officers, was immoral, dishonest, and scaring investors (local and foreign), while aggravating under-development.
