Stakeholders Seek Multi Faceted Approach To Fighting Corruption

Stakeholders in the fight against corruption, have called for the adoption of a multifaceted approach if the anti-graft war is to be won.

The stakeholders made the call during a sensitisation programme on promoting accountability and anti-corruption, using behavioural change approach in Kafanchan.

The programme was organised by the Interfaith Mediation Centre, Kaduna, and funded by the Catherine MacArthur Foundation.

Speaking at the event, the guest speaker, Reverend Gideon Mutum, said corruption was a menace which needed to be stamped out if the country was to make any progress.

He also added that the family, religious and educational institutions were character moulders, who had a key role to play in promoting anti-corruption.

In his remarks, representative of the Jama’atu Nasril Islam, Isah Abbas, suggested that one way to rid the country of corruption was for people to resolve to always do the right thing.

According to Abbas, attitudinal change will go a long way in changing the narrative about fighting corruption in the country.
