ASABA—The drive for a corrupt-free society gained momentum yesterday as stakeholders in the education sector held a one-day advocacy meeting in Asaba, Delta State, with the theme, Integration of anti-corruption issues in school curriculum.
The programme which was supported by the United Nations Development Programme, UNDP, was attended by key stakeholders in the education sector.
Speaking, the UNDP focal person and Director, Overseas Development Assistance Department of the Ministry of Economic Planning, Mrs. Ogbewe Patience, emphasized the need for the Delta State Ministry of Basic and Secondary Education to own the advocacy project since its voice could influence decisions at the federal level.
Earlier, the convener Mr. Lotanna Okoye, Chief Executive Officer, CEO, of Honeypot Ideal Services, Asaba, agreed with former President Olusegun Obasanjo in his words “With corruption, there can be no sustainable development, nor political stability.”
