FCTA Sensitise Staff On Dangers Of Corruption

The Anti-Corruption and Transparency Unit of the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) organized a one-day sensitization training in Abuja for heads of secretariats, departments, and agencies.

The workshop’s goal is to rid the FCT Administration of corrupt practices.

Malam Muhammad Musa Bello, Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), remarked that in order to tackle corruption effectively, all hands must be on deck.

He took advantage of the opportunity to remind public officers in the FCT Administration to follow Public Service Rules when performing official duties, while also stating that the FCT Administration had already institutionalized good working ethics and international best practices, resulting in stronger institutions.

He further added that the FCT Administration’s recent great performance in the ICPC’s Ethics and Integrity Compliance Scorecard for Ministries, Departments, and Agencies is a reflection of the FCT Administration’s whole staff’s hard work and dedication.

The Chairman of the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission, Prof. Bolaji Owasanoye, had earlier remarked in his goodwill message that the FCT Administration has shown tremendous dedication to the fight against corruption.

The Chairman, who was represented by ICPC Director of Systems Study Review Barrister Abia Udofia, said that the Anti-Corruption and Transparency Unit is not trying to persecute any company or individual, but rather to assist the government in ensuring that things are done appropriately.

FCTA ACTU is active and leading the anti-corruption battle in the FCT, according to him.

The Permanent Secretary of the Federal Capital Territory Administration, Mr. Olusade Adesola, stated in his remarks that the current administration has been vigorously combatting corruption for the past six years, with a remarkable track record of achievement.

According to him, corruption is a cankerworm that has a great potential to destroy any Administration’s progressive progress and advancement.

According to the Permanent Secretary, the FCT Administration has adopted anti-corruption policies and initiatives to ensure that personnel adhere to established government norms and procedures.

The destructive impact of corruption on the nation’s economy and prosperity, according to Mr. Udo Samuel Atang, Director in the Office of the FCTA Permanent Secretary, underlines the fight against corruption in government institutions.

He continued, “The approval of the sensitization effort by the FCT Administration’s authorities is a clear show of the Administration’s willingness to nip the issue of corruption in the bud.”
