The Transparency and Accountability Network (TAN) has called for joint efforts to fight corruption, emphasizing that nobody should be left out, observing that statistics by the network showed that Nigeria is occupying 150 position out of about 180 corrupt countries of the world which is not encouraging.
Penpushing reports that the network made the call in a statement jointly signed by Jubril Lawal (National coordinator) and Akin Soleye (National secretary), stressing that no one is immune from the scourge
‘The statistics by Transparent International (TI) reveals that Nigeria is occupying 150 position out of about 180 corrupt countries of the world is not encouraging at all. The distressing revelation underscores the urgent attention of government representatives, law enforcement agencies as well as civil society organizations and other stakeholders to join forces to fight this monster’, the statement reads.
‘The disease is corruption. The vaccine is transparency/ We all must know that fighting corruption is not just good governance, it is self-defense. When you don’t stand against corruption, you indirectly support it’, the network said.
‘Transparency and Accountability Network (TAN) condemns a situation where the renumeration of National Assembly members and other top appointees of the Federal Government are not disclosed to the public. To us, it is the height of corruption in the land which should not be encouraged’.
‘Transparency and Accountability Network (TAN) also called on the government to strengthen all anti-corruption agencies in the country for efficient and effective service delivery and charged the judiciary to be up and doing in providing justice in all corruption cases’, the statement emphasised.
