The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission, ICPC has declared that ridding Nigeria of corruption, insecurity and other vices require the concerted efforts of all stakeholders.
This declaration was made by Chief Superintendent, ICPC, Akibu Garba who represented the Commission at the National Inter-faith Military and Para-military Security Summit which held in Abuja recently.
Speaking on the need for synergy amongst security agencies, Garba said all stakeholders need to work as one for a better Nigeria to emerge.
He therefore advised that to avoid duplication of work, there has to be adequate information, intelligence and expertise sharing for the common good of Nigeria and her citizens.
In his words, “We are partners in progress and not competitors. Let us see ourselves as such in order to build sustainable peace for Nigeria”.
Earlier in his remarks, the President of the Two-Faith Inter-Religious Organisation, Hillary Iheanacho called for mutual respect amongst security agencies to achieve the peace that Nigeria desperately needs.
He went on to advise that at all levels our cultural values of respect, love, regard for authority etc. need to be upheld as a nation in order to stop all vices such as banditry, kidnapping, corruption etc. that Nigeria is faced with.
A major highlight of the day was the launching of a book titled: “The Dislodgement of Violence”.
