The International Monetary Fund (IMF) said it would collaborate with the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) in fighting corruption in Nigeria.
IMF officials, who visited ICPC headquarters in Abuja, said the body will enhance the relationship between the commission and the Nigerian Financial Intelligence Unit (NFIU) for the sustenance of anti-corruption campaign.
Marilyne Laudry, Technical Assistant with IMF, said the fund would provide the necessary assistance to make ICPC and other anti-corruption agencies more focused and effective in their duty.
She said IMF stressed the importance of establishing a strategic analysis framework by ICPC, NFIU and other anti-graft agencies.
Representing the acting ICPC chairman, the commission’s secretary, Mr. Elvis Oglafa, said it would continue to collaborate with NFIU and consider and implement the areas highlighted by IMF.
