This charge was given recently by a Principal Superintendent of the Commission, Mr. Jenmi Ganiu Owolabi during a sensitization program organized for the staff of CAC in Akure, the Ondo State Capital.
The Principal Superintendent maintained that since one of the major statutory functions of CAC as set out in the Section 7 of the Companies and Allied Matters Act is to administer the Act, including the regulation and supervision of the formation, incorporation, management and winding up of companies, they must ensure that integrity, honesty and transparency are incorporated in their modes of operations and in the discharge of their duties.

In a paper presentation titled “Advancing the core values of National Ethics and Integrity Policy for Behavioral Change: A Responsibility for All” Mr. Jenmi took the participants through the history, fundamental principles, purpose and core values of the NEIP which include Human Dignity, Voice and Participation, Patriotism, Personal Responsibility, Integrity, National Unity, and Professionalism.

In a vote of thanks, the Zonal Head of the Commission, Mrs. Oguntuase Abosede commended the initiatives of the ICPC for exposing their staff to the core values of the NEIP, stating that it was timely, educative and enlightening.

She stated that the participants would henceforth imbibe principles of integrity, honesty, fairness and equity in the discharge of their duties.
