The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) has re-emphasized the importance of restoring public trust and confidence in governance.

The Resident Anti-Corruption Commissioner (RACC) of ICPC Lagos, Mr. Kabir Elelu, made this statement when he and his team visited the Commissioner of Police (CP), Lagos Command.

He explained the role of public education and enlightenment as an effective method of sensitizing the public on and against corruption, re-orientating the ethical values of the society and building a better nation.

He introduced the National Ethics and Integrity Policy (NEIP) with its seven core values of Human Dignity, Voice and Participation, Patriotism, Personal Responsibility, Integrity, National Unity and Professionalism, noting that these will enhance transparency and accountability, especially in the public and private sectors, in line with global best practices.

The CP Abiodun Alabi in his response, stated his willingness to partner with the Commission on sensitization programmes for his policemen, and lauded the visit as an opportunity to know other areas where the two law enforcement agencies can work and assist each other in the fight against corruption.

Speaking further, the ICPC RACC acknowledged that the Police had been of tremendous support to the Commission and sought for its continuous support especially the deployment of more officers to the Commission as they assist in executing the enforcement aspect of the Commission’s work.

In response, the CP promised to increase the numerical strength of the policemen attached to the office.

Our motto is: ‘We stand for the truth, irrespective of who tells it’. Driven by this philosophy, our aim has been to create a platform where every voice, every narrative – provided they are decently expressed –  is allowed expression. Our belief is that by promoting unfettered competition of ideas, the truth will eventually emerge. Obviously, doing this while resisting any temptation to be captured by any special interest or tendency makes survival as an online newspaper more challenging. This is why we will appreciate any support from our readers:
