Members of Batch ‘A’ ICPC Anti-Corruption Community Development Service (CDS) Group of Bauchi LGA, have taken the anti-corruption crusade to the highways by mounting a public enlightenment signpost along the Jos-Bauchi road.
During the unveiling and commissioning of the signpost, the outgoing CDS group president, Oguebie Robinson Nwabueze, stated that the outgoing corps members had during their service year, engaged in different activities to contribute their quota to the fight against Corruption. They took the decision to erect the signpost, specifically targeted at commuters coming into Bauchi town through the Jos-Bauchi highway, so as to continue their public sensitization even while they are away.
Also speaking during the occasion, the NYSC Bauchi Zonal Inspector, Mr. Ibrahim Mohammed, commended the corps members for coming up with the noble project and encourage them to be ambassadors of the NYSC and ICPC wherever they find themselves, noting that the fight against corruption is for everybody.
Representative of the Bauchi state office of the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission, Mr. Ibaraboka J. Jack, appreciated the corps members for the initiative and encouraged them to groom those they are leaving behind to do more and contribute their own quota in the fight against Corruption.
Goodwill messages were received from the NYSC CDS Group Schedule officer, Mr. Murtala Aliyu Dakondi and Muhammad Baba Fika of the ICPC Bauchi State Office.
The highlight of the event was the unveiling of the signpost which carried some anti-corruption messages artistically designed as follows:
“INTEGRITY IS A VIRTUE FOR NATIONAL GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT”
“SHUN CORRUPTION IN NIGERIA, AND AID HER GROWTH”
AND “ICPC…..CORRUPTION MUST GO”.
