According to the communiqué, government must have the political will to ensure that perpetrators of illegal acts were punished to serve as deterrent to others.
“Names of corrupt people should be published for Nigerians to see and know.”
“Members of the civil society and the media should engage government at all levels in fighting corruption in the country,” the communiqué said.
The communiqué further called for continuous education/sensitisation programmes targeted at the youth by NGOs and other government anti-corruption agencies.
“This will help to build a better society; and Nigeria will become a better place to live in,” the communiqué added.
