ICPC charges ACTU of Kogi Institute to Entrench Integrity, Transparency and Accountability

The Kogi State office of the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) has charged newly inaugurated members of the Anti-Corruption and Transparency Unit (ACTU) of the Power Equipment and Electrical Machinery Development Institute Okene, Kogi State to work as a team to entrench a culture of discipline, integrity, transparency, and accountability in their establishment.

The Resident Anti-Corruption Commissioner (RACC) of the ICPC Kogi State office, Mr. Ulu James Okoro gave this charge during the inauguration of the ACTU recently at the Institute.

He expressed ICPC’s appreciation to the management of the Institute for approving the inauguration of the Unit emphasizing that without management buy-in, the ACTU cannot function properly. He therefore solicited management’s support to ensure that it is given the enabling environment to fully carry out its functions.

Mr. Okoro went further to urge members of the Unit to work hard and avoid using their position to either hurt or victimize fellow staff.

Thereafter, the acting Managing Director and CEO, Engr. Isah Yakubu Adaga thanked the ICPC team for the inauguration and assured him of the Institute’s readiness and determination to rid the agency of incidents of corruption.

In his vote of thanks, the new ACTU Chairman, Mr. Abdullahi Usman Rasheed, expressed appreciation to ICPC for working tooth and nail to ensure that corruption is combated in the country and therefore called on all the staff to join hands in the fight against corruption in the institute.
