He stated that government has put in place laws, regulations and standard practice to guide public servant in the conduct of their duties.

These, he said include the Constitution, Public Services Rules, Financial Regulations, Scheme of Service, Public Procurement Act.

“Some of the provisions of these laws are often abused and neglected,” said Magaji.

He said in the present administration had declared its total commitment to fighting corruption and sanitizing the public service and expects Federal Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) to take the lead in actualising these goals.
