As part of Management’s continued efforts at entrenching transparency, NIPC has reconstituted its ACTU team. The Independent Corrupt Practices And Other Offences Commission (ICPC) inaugurated and inducted the chairman, secretary and members of the Unit on Monday.
ACTU which stands for Anti-Corruption and Transparency Unit was established by the ICPC as one of the implementation mechanisms for its mandate on prohibition and prevention of corruption especially in the Public Service. The Unit in NIPC is expected to monitor compliance, promote ethics, integrity and support NIPC’s commitment to zero tolerance for corruption.
In her welcome address, NIPC’s Executive Secretary/CEO, Ms Yewande Sadiku stated that she looks forward to NIPC’s ACTU delivering on their mandate; she assured that they have the full support of Management. She also affirmed her commitment and that of Management to ensuring the independence of ACTU.
In his goodwill message, the representative of the Chairman of ICPC, Mr Olayinka Aiyegbayo stated that the inauguration demonstrated NIPC’s support to government’s stance in seeing ACTU as a veritable instrument in fighting corruption in the public service.
The leadership of NIPC’s ACTU is headed by Mrs Uchenna Okonkwo, with Mr Bello Hamidu as Secretary.
