Chairman House Committee on Anti-Corruption, Garba Shehu, has urged Nigerians to leverage on the Freedom of Information Act, Whistle-blowing policy and the Open Government Initiative OGP to enhance the anti-corruption fight in Nigeria .
Shehu made the call today in Abuja at a rally organised by “Say No Campaign” a coalition of Civil Society Groups to mark the 2019 World Anti-corruption Day with the theme United Against Corruption.
According to him, Nigerians can use these policies and laws as powerful tools to advocate for good governance and demand accountability, especially with the aid of social media.
Shehu urged Nigerians to be vigilant and work against corruption, while the National Assembly would continue to advocate for measures that would empower citizens to be able to fight the war.
The Co-convener, Say No Campaign, Ezenwa Nwagwu, said that the rally was organised to create awareness on the need for citizens to join in the fight against corruption.
