Anti-Corruption stakeholders say the fight against corruption requires joint and collective responsibility of all Nigerians.
They took this position at the 2nd edition of Corruption Tori Follow us Fight Corruption webinar series on Tuesday.
The discussants brainstormed on the topic “Access to Information, a Condition for Citizen Participation”.
One of the panelists at the webinar, Sayo Samuel-Dada, a program officer of Shehu Musa Yar’Adua Foundation, said those in the business of corruption need to be encouraged.
Another panelist, Sammuel Oyimatu, a Program Officer with Civil Society Legislative Advocacy Centre, regretted that most public institutions do not have a functional and up to date website while some don’t have proper records of their activities.
The Assistant Director, Freedom of Information Department, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Jeff Onyetu highlighted some of the works the department is doing including collaboration with the media and Radio/TV enlightenment programmes.
The third edition of the Corruption Tori Follow Us Fight Corruption Webinar series which is supported by MacArthur Foundation will be coming up next month.
