Corruption in Public Service Stem from Lack of Integrity, Inefficiency by Public Officials - ICPC Boss

The Chairman of the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC), Professor Bolaji Owasanoye, SAN, OFR has stated that the effect of corruption in the country’s public service can be linked to inefficiency and lack of integrity displayed by government officials tasked with the mandate of managing public funds and resources.

 

He stated this in his keynote address during the sensitization/enlightenment workshop conducted by the Federal Ministry of Transportation in Abuja recently. 

 

The ICPC Boss, who was represented by a Board Member of the Commission, Dr. Louis S. Mandama, mni, noted that every sector of the country experiences the effects of corruption at an endemic level, and this adversely affects the provision of infrastructures, national stability and global image of the country. 

 

“One of the major reasons contributing to the crisis is the inefficiency and lack of integrity displayed by government officials tasked with the mandate of managing public funds and resources. The issue of corruption and its attendant problems in our country therefore requires constant interventions and the development of multi-faceted approach in tackling the hydra-headed monster.”
