Purveyor of Ganduje’s alleged bribe videos wins integrity award
For demonstrating courage in releasing video clips that allegedly showed Kano State Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje receiving a $5 million gratification from contractors, the Publisher of Daily Nigerian, an online newspaper, Mr. Jaafar Jaafar, has bagged an integrity award.
Presenting the award to him yesterday in Abuja as the Anti-corruption Champion of the Year, the organisers, Youth Alive Foundation (YAF), noted that the move was not only to reshape norms that sustain corruption, but also to build a new culture and consciousness that highlight integrity, selflessness and patriotism.
Its Executive Director, Dr. Udy Okon, said: “If our leaders were first citizens with integrity, of course, they will lead with integrity in their core. So, this is our strategy to raise the right kind of leaders for the nation.”
