A Kano-based non-governmental organisation, Network for Empowerment and Development Initiative (NEDIN), has called on government at all levels to be sincere in the fight against corruption in the country.
Government the group said must have the political will to ensure that perpetrators of the illegal act were punished to serve as deterrent to others.
‘’Names of corrupt people should be published for Nigerians to see and know.
‘’Members of the civil society and the media should engage government at all levels in fighting corruption in the country’’, the communiqué said.
The group in a communiqué issued at the end of its one-day seminar on: “Youth against Corruption, Panacea to a Just and Peaceful Society,’’ called for continuous education and sensitisation programmes targeted at the youth by NGOs and other government anti-corruption agencies
The programme was organised for students of Federal Government College, Kano.
The communiqué was signed by the coordinator of NEDIN, Mr Peter Tijjani and made available to newsmen in Kano on Saturday..
‘’This will help to build a better society; and Nigeria will become a better place to live in’’, the communiqué added.
