The Federal Government has restated its commitment to stop the menace of corruption by strengthening institutions to block leakages.
This is according to Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, who spoke to a gathering in Abuja on the heels of the African Anti-corruption day anniversary.
“This government is committed to halting the menace of corruption and will continue to be and strengthen institutions to block leakages.
“Policies will be developed and enforced to achieve this noble goal, including creating an enabling environment for all Nigerians to strive on a level playing ground.
“We must be our nation’s keeper by saying no to corruption and reporting any act of corruption around us.”
He called on foreign partners to enforce their anti-corruption laws to prevent acceptance of Nigeria’s stolen monies and repatriate all funds stashed in their country’s banks.
“In the same vein, I wish to call on other countries to diligently enforce their own anti-corruption laundering law to prevent acceptance of Nigeria’s stolen monies and asset into their economies.
“We expect that where the integrity of their system has been shown to have been compromised, they will work with Nigeria to quickly remedy the situation by intercepting the stolen asset and the criminals and expeditiously repatriating them to Nigeria.”
