NSCDC pledges to partner with ICPC to tackle corruption

The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC ), Osun Command, has promised to partner with the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences  Commission (ICPC) to tackle corruption.

Dr Akintayo Adaralewa, Osun NSCDC Commandant, made the promise during a courtesy visit to  ICPC  Resident Anti-Corruption Commissioner, Mr Demola Bakare, on Monday in Osogbo.

Adaralewa said the NSCDC would continue to make its personnel available for the ICPC during its anti-corruption operation.

Adaralewa commended the efforts of the commission in the fight against corruption, which had eaten deep into every sector in the country.

He said there was a need to join forces together to tackle corrupt practices in all ramifications.

Adaralewa urged Nigerians to collaborate with the ICPC in the fight against corruption.

In his response, the ICPC boss said it was important for all agencies of government to collaborate to stem the tide of corruption in the country.

Bakare, however, said one of the challenges being faced by the commission in the state was the lack of relevant information by the public to eradicate corruption.

He appealed to members of the public and the NSCDC to share information and intelligence that could assist the commission to minimise corruption in society.

Bakare, however, said the commission was ready to partner with the Corps in the fight against corruption.
