LAGOS — The Technical Unit on Governance and Anti-Corruption Reforms, TUGAR, and the Inter Agency Task Team, IATT, said, weekend, that the implementation of the anti-corruption crusade will be more thorough to move the country forward.
Head of TUGAR, Mrs. Lilian Ekeanyanwu, disclosure this at the South-West sensitisation workshop on the National Strategy to Combat Corruption, organised by TUGAR and IATT.
Ekeanyanwu said the adopted mechanism against corruption would take tripod strategy, which involves public engagement, enforcement and prevention.
Presenting a draft national strategy to combat corruption, Ekeanyanwu said improved public confidence in Anti Corruption Agencies, ACAs, was paramount.
She said: “The tripod anti-corruption strategy will enable anti-corruption policies to be more thorough in its implementation. Laws are not our problem in Nigeria, it is the implementation of these laws. Several policies have been wonderfully created but implementing these laws are the problems.”
“The cooperation from the ACA and implementation will be more thorough. TUGAR will monitor and evaluate anti-corruption initiatives at all levels of governance in the country and provide data-based coordination and facilitate the building of synergy among the diverse anticorruption initiatives.”
