A Nigerian-based leadership performance evaluation magazine, Scorecard, has honoured the Chairman of the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission Mr. Ekpo Nta for his “optimal performance” in the fight against corruption.
Publisher of the magazine, Mr. Humphery Onyima, presented the Scorecard Leadership Certificate of Credence to the ICPC Chairman as an outstanding “Statesman of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.” during a courtesy visit to the Commission recently.
He explained that the honour came against the backdrop of the Chairman’s selfless sacrifice and tireless commitment towards repositioning ICPC in the fight against corruption which in turn has brought about attitudinal change in the management of public funds in the country in recent times.
Reacting to the honour done to the ICPC Chairman, the Secretary to the Commission, Dr. Elvis Oglafa who received the award on behalf of the Chairman, commended the publisher for his interest in the fight to get rid of corruption in Nigeria and thanked him for deeming it fit to honour the Chairman with the award.
Dr. Oglafa also assured him that the Commission would partner with him in waging the war against corruption.
