ABUJA—The Country Director Of The United  Nations Development  Programme, UNDP, To Nigeria, Lamin Beyai, Has Said The Best Way To Institutionalise The Fight Against Corruption In The Country And Make It Effective Was To Reform The Public Service And Make It Part Of The Anti- Corruption Crusade.

The UNDP Chief Stated This In Abuja At  The Training Of Trainers On Corruption Risk Assessments, CRA, Held At  The Anti-Corruption Academy Of Nigeria, ACAN, The Training Wing Of Independent Corrupt Practices And Other Related Offences Commission, ICPC, In Keffi, Nasarawa State.

Beysi, Who Was Represented By Deputy Country Director, Mr Mandisa Mashologu, Noted That The Anti-corruption Crusade Of The Government Would Help Reduce Incidence Of Corruption In Nigeria.

According To Him, The Rating Of Nigeria By Transparency International As The 136th  Most Corrupt Country Out Of 168 Countries In 2015 Is Lower Than The Average For Sub-Saharan Africa.

He Said With The Tremendous Efforts Put In Place   Through Institutional Reforms, Enforcements, Prosecution,  Entrenching The Culture Of Integrity And Capacity Building Of Staff Of Anti-corruption Agencies To Tackle The Menace, Nigeria Would Fare Better In Subsequent Ratings.

He Said: “As You Are All Aware, In The 2015 Corruption Perception Index By The Transparency International Which Measures The Perceived Levels Of Public Sector Corruption In 168 Countries, Nigeria Ranked 136th, Lower Than The Average For Sub-Saharan Africa. Tackling Corruption Remains A Top Priority Of The Government As One Of Means To Facilitate Efficient Delivery Of Public Services And Enhance National Development Opportunities.

‘The Process Has Resulted In On-going Reforms Which Are Already Yielding Positive Results.”

Earlier In His Remarks, The Provost Of ACAN, Professor Sola Akinrinade, Who Declared The Training Open On Behalf Of ICPC Chairman, Mr.  Ekpo  Nta, Said The Establishment Of The Academy Was In Line With The Commission’s Determination To Fulfil Its Enlightenment And Education Functions In Systematic And Sustainable Way To Achieve Long Term Impact In The National War Against Corruption.
