The commission under the chairmanship of Muhayi Magaji Rimingado has launched anti-corruption clubs in secondary schools.
Speaking at the launching, Rimingado said the commission was determined to root out corruption in the state by adopting a holistic approach to fight it.
He added that the commission would soon establish units in all ministries, parastatals and agencies in the state.
According to him, “Nigerians need to be patriotic to fight the menace at all levels. It is regrettable that most state governments in the country have failed to join the federal government in the fight against coruption. Unless we adopt a holistic approach to the menace, we will not succeed in achieve much in fighting corruption.”
Explaining the rationale behind the formation of anti-corruption clubs in secondary schools, Rimingado, said, “To achieve that we must involved everybody including students and that is why we took the camapign to our schools. From now on, members of anti-corruption clubs are our agents in their respective schools.”
