Group Flays Activists' Attitude Towards Corruption


The National Anti-Corruption Volunteers Corps (NAVC), an off-shoot of the  Independent Corrupt Practices Commission (ICPC), has blamed some local government  chairmen, clerics and human right activists for the failure of the anti-graft  agencies to succeed in their fight against corruption in the country.

Comrade Lanre Bakare, the Lagos State Treasurer of the group made the remark during  a stakeholders’ meeting of the group in Lagos at the weekend.

Bakare said efforts by the group to discuss with with some local government  chairmen, clerics and activists in the country has not yielded the desired result,  as some of them failed to honour the group’s invitations.

“We are surprised that some local government chairmen, clergymen and some so-called  activists have not been helping matters in the fight against corruption in this  country,

“We have invited some of them to our programmes, seminars and other events but we  never see them and these are the people that claim to be fighting for the masses.  They are supposed to be campaigning against corruption and corrupt officials but it  is unfortunately that they are only fighting for their pockets.”

The group warned that it would not hesitate to publishing the names of those who are  cogs in the wheels of progress in the fight against corruption in the country

The group solicited for the cooperation of all Nigerians, to collaborate with the  anti-graft bodies, to wage war against corruption in all its totality. He also  commended Mr.Adedeji Muyiwa, Chairman, Kosofe Local Government Area and Pastor  Temitope B. Joshua of Church of All Nations for partnering with and honouring the  invitations of the group.
