ICPC urges public servants to be dedicated

By Paul Michael

Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) has charged public servants to be dedicated in the discharge of their duties.

Representative of the ICPC Acting Resident Anti-Corruption Commissioner of Katsina State, Sani Tukur Tarauni, gave the charge at a sensitisation programme organised for 105 officers of the Katsina State Safety and Road Traffic Authority (KASSAROTA).

The one-day enlightenment event with the theme “War Against Corruption: The ICPC Perspective”, was aimed at sensitising the officers on the need to shun corruption and imbibe the spirit of honesty and integrity in discharging their official duties.

Turauni urged the officers to be mindful of the fact that KASSAROTA is a new establishment and an integrity organisation which demands that its officials must display a high level of transparency while on the field.

He further reiterated that the Commission’s approach to the fight against corruption has led to the realisation that the only way to stem the tide of the hydra headed monster is through collective responsibility and public involvement.

In his response, the Director-General of KASSAROTA, Alhaji Danlami Yar’adua, noted that the Authority was established by the state government for traffic intervention in order to sanitize the roads by ensuring road users do the right thing in Katsina State.

Yar’adua appreciated the efforts of ICPC in educating the public towards reducing the level of corruption particularly in Katsina State and the nation at large.

He added that the current initiative and sensitisation of Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) by the Commission would go a long way in checkmating corruption and other related offences in our communities for a purposeful development.
