ABUJA – Chief Perry Opara, the Chairman, Finance and General Purpose Committee, National Directorate of Employment, has urged the National Assembly to pass the National Ethics Bill into law.
Opara made the call while declaring open the 4th National Ethics Summit in Abuja.
Opara, who was the Chairman of the occasion, said the theme of the summit was “Transforming the National Foundations by Ethics and Values for National Transformation and Development“.
He said that promotion of ethics would transform the country‘s image, while the bill would help to moderate the behaviours of Nigerians.
Opara said the bill could set the stage for the establishment of a Federal Ministry of National Ethics and Values to promote discipline and transparency in various agencies.
He said the law would go a long way to create a stronger foundation for the building of good ethics and sound moral values for the people.
“The creation of the ministry will also promote the country‘s integrity towards positive transformation of the image of the citizens in the country.
