The Shehu of Borno, Dr. Abubakar Ibn Umar Garba El-kanemi CFR, has advised public servants to ensure they left a record bereft of corruption allegations as posterity was watching.
El-kanemi gave the charge when he played host to the Resident Anti-Corruption Commissioner, Borno State Office of the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission, ICPC, Mr. Ishaku Sakaba and his team when they visited him at his palace in Maiduguri Borno State recently.
The Monarch, who revealed that in his days in service he rose to the rank of Permanent Secretary but never had any corruption charge brought against him told his audience that such was possible because he stood against corruption.
He charged public servants to bring back sanity to the system by standing on the path of honesty, integrity and accountability as the younger generation were watching.
The Shehu commended ICPC for their efforts in ridding Nigeria of corruption while pledging his unwavering support alongside his council of chiefs in cascading the messages of the Commission to the people.
In his remarks, Mr. Sakaba said ICPC was established in 2000, charged with a three-pronged mandate of enforcement, prevention and public education with the aim of achieving a Nigeria free from all forms of corruption and corrupt practices.
He called on the traditional rulers to help save Nigeria by joining ICPC in urging their people to shun corruption and report every act of corruption to the Commission and other relevant bodies.
