Nigerian Shippers’ Council (NSC) joined the rest of the World to mark this year’s edition of International Anti-corruption Day. The 2023 International Anti-corruption Day with the theme “Uniting the World Against Corruption for Development, Peace and Security’’ was organized by Nigerian Shippers’ Council in conjunction with the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC).
In an interview with “The Shipper”, the Chairman, Anti-corruption and Transparency Monitoring Unit of NSC, Mrs. Ada Okam, said the Council has played a pivotal role in its campaign against corruption, adding that the Council has distributed Conditions of Service, Civil Service Rules and vital documents to staff as measures to checkmate the cankerworm in work places.
The Secretary, Anti-corruption and Transparency Monitoring Unit of the Council, Mrs. Nkechi Emeruwa called for collective effort to fight corruption in the country.
According to her, corruption has eaten deep into every sector of the economy, adding that the menace that corruption has caused to the society cannot be overlooked. This, she said, necessitates the annual anti-corruption walk to the port access roads to highlight the need to shun corruption.
Also speaking, the Principal Superintendent, ICPC, Mrs. Odega Chidubem reiterated the need to embrace integrity and accountability in all sectors of the economy.
According to her, corruption has to be addressed because the cankerworm is capable of tarnishing the country’s image.
The anti-corruption walk to port access roads also featured the distribution of flyers containing messages about corruption to people within the port areas.
