 Ambode Calls On Nigerians To Fight Corruption

ambode (1)The Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode has called on all Nigerians to join President Muhammadu Buhari in fighting corruption.
Speaking through the Chairman of the Lagos State Universal Basic Education Board, Dr. Ganiyu Oluremi Sopeyin, on Wednesday at the Lagos Island Club Public Interest Symposium themed: “How to Fight and Win Corruption: Challenges & Prospects”, the Governor noted that the fight against corruption must be a collective effort of the government and civil society.
According to him, institutional analysis of corruption indicates where the remedies lie, adding that greater transparency, accountability and merit-based human resource management in public administration are principles which, if implemented, will make it possible to curb corruption.
“It is important that our institutions are strengthened to sustain the capacity to identify acts of corruption and ensure that people who indulge in or benefit from such acts are made to face the wrath of the law”.
“It is also very important that we, who bear the consequences of corruption, take a firm position against it. We must demand accountability, transparency and probity from those we have given the responsibility to manage our common wealth”, he said.
He stressed that all Nigerians must play their roles as expected, genuinely and patriotically, if our nation must join the league of developed countries that are committed to the socio economic wellbeing of their citizenry.
He emphasized that we all need to do more in terms of sacrifice which would spur our nation on the path of corrupt free society and sustainable development.
