The Osun State office of the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission, (ICPC) has inaugurated an Anti -Corruption and Transparency Unit in Prototype Engineering Development Institute (PEDI) Osun State.
The Resident Anti-Corruption Commissioner (RACC) Osun State, Mr. Demola Bakare, fsi, in his goodwill message noted that “the unit is an institutional ethics and anti-corruption instrument designed to operate as an autonomous unit and with functional linkages with the office of the Chief Executive to help in fighting corruption and eliminating corrupt practices in the workplace”.
He made it known that ACTU is not intended to subsume the authority of the management under it wings, rather it is to compliment them, especially in mainstreaming a positive anti-corruption culture where it may be lacking.
Delivering a sensitisation lecture titled “Compliance With FG’s Circular(s) on Anti-corruption Programme by MDAs ( fostering Management’s Support for ACTU)” Mr. Bakare made it known that attitude towards implementation of Federal Government’s Circular(s) and active support of ACTU will not only boost Nigeria’s anti-corruption efforts but also directly improve the overall performance (ranking) and reputation of the organisation.
The Acting Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of PEDI, Engineer Moruf Oyeleke Oduola thanked ICPC for their efforts to ensure that corruption is prevented in MDAs.
He assured that he will do his best to ensure transparency in the Institute.
