The RAC, who was represented by a staff of the Commission, Mr. Buhari Bello, at the event organised by Legal Awareness for Nigerian Women (LANW), urged citizens to follow the execution of constituency and other government projects in their localities and report any infraction to ICPC for quick redress.
