Government urged to be sincere on fight against corruption

20 December 2014, 15:58

Kano - A Kano-based non-govermental organisation, Network for Empowerment and Development Initiative (NEDIN), has called on government at all levels to be sincere on the fight against corruption in the country.

This is contained in a communiqué issued at the end of a one-day seminar on: “Youth against Corruption, Panacea to a Just and Peaceful Society,” organised by the non-governmental organisation.

The programme was organised for students of Federal Government College, Kano.

The communiqué was signed by the coordinator of NEDIN, Peter Tijjani and made available to the media in Kano on Saturday.

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.
