CSOs Task Tinubu On Committing To Anti-Corruption Fight

A coalition of 30 Anti-corruption Civil Society Organisations have called on President Bola Tinubu to revisit the anti-corruption fight in the country and table an agenda to curb its spread.

The call was made by Mr Auwal Rafsanjani, spokesperson for the group and Executive Director, Civil Society Legislative Advocacy Centre (CISLAC).

Mr Rafsanjani says the nation has been plagued with corrupt practices manifesting in different forms for many years and which have resulted in a slowdown of the judicial process.

In listing other causes of corruption, he added underfunding of anti-graft agencies, the absence of political will at the highest level of government and the lack of implementation of key laws such as Freedom of Information Act, and the Proceeds of Crime (Recovery and Management) Act.

Amongst recommendations made, the group called for the passing of the Whistle-blower and Witness Protection Bill into law, and the full implementation of the National Strategy on anti-corruption and the Freedom of Information Act across all the states of the Federation including the FCT.
