As the whole world commemorates the annual anti corruption day, the Nigerian Guild of Investigative Journalists, NGIJ has urged President Buhari – led administration to be decisive, non partisan and adhere strictly to the rule of law in its spirited fight against corruption.
This is contained in a release issued in Lagos and signed by the President of the Guild, Wale Abydeen and made available to pressmen.
Abydeen applauded the government for its efforts so far and urged anti-graft agencies to resist intimidation, partisanship, favouritism and nepotism in carrying out their constitutional responsibilities.
He enjoined the anti-graft agencies to live above board to salvage socio-political and economic life of the country.
The President of the Guild noted that no nation can truly prosper without a decisive fight against corruption. He added that “for Nigeria to get to her promise land, the fight against corruption must be well coordinated and sustained.”
He thereby charged Nigerians to “rise against the menace by providing information that would assist the anti graft agencies in carrying out its operations. “
The Guild was recently in Ondo State for an intensive Governance Assessment survey of the Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu’s administration.
