The Chairman made the vow on Monday while hosting a delegation from the Civil Society Legislative Centre (CISLAC) who were at the headquarters of ICPC on a courtesy visit.

He said ICPC would continue to live above board and run a responsible organization that would work within the confines of the law to tackle corruption in Nigeria.

He said: “As the Chairman of ICPC, I have told Nigerians that we are going to work within the confines of the law and also in accordance with the national best practices to ensure that we tackle this challenge of corruption in this country. We are determined to ensure that we promote good ethical justice and also run a responsible organization that is efficient in its targets and responsibility.

“We will continue to sustain that reputation and integrity which ICPC is known for and we are not going to tolerate any corruption within the Commission. Whatever we are going to do, we will ensure that we do it logically.”

The ICPC Boss also harped on the role of civil society organisations like CISLAC in the fight against corruption saying they had been keeping agencies like ICPC on its toes through constant demands for transparency and accountability.

He promised that ICPC would continue to sustain its collaborative efforts with CSOs through many of its initiatives which includes Constituency and Executive Projects Tracking Initiatives (CEPTI), System Studies and Review and others.

The Executive Director of CISLAC, Mr. Auwal Musa Rafsanjani had said that the essence of the visit was to reignite the partnership that existed between the centre and ICPC.

He also promised that CISLAC would continue to partner with ICPC, “to support the good work that you are doing and support your leadership to ensure that we minimize the cost of corruption in Nigeria”.
