The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission, ICPC has urged Nigerians to fight corruption for better society and success of the next generations.

The Chief Superintendent of the ICPC, Godwin Achile gave the advice at the Symposium in commemoration of 2019 Disability awareness week organised by Centre for Citizens with Disabilities in Enugu.

Achile said that corruption could be fought by everyone, irrespective of social status or physical disability.

He noted that thorough and holistic implementation of the Disability Act would enable the persons living with disabilities to join in the fight against corruption.

Similarly, the Attorney-General of Enugu State, Justice Priscilla Emehelum, represented by Amaechi Ngene of Ministry of Justice, said that persons with disabilities were equally affected by corruption in the country and they might even be more affected.

Emehelum called on the government to inaugurate National Commission for Persons with Disabilities without delay, to oversee the implementation of the Law at the states levels.
