CSOs Charges Tinubu To Declare Fight Against Corruption

A coalition of 30 civil society organizations (CSOs) charges President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to declare a national commitment to the fight against corruption.

It urged Tinubu not to appoint individuals with allegations of corruption against them into any public office because it would continue to taint the image of the country.

The Executive Director, Civil Society Legislative Advocacy Centre (CISLAC) and Head of Transparency International -Nigeria (TI-Nigeria), Malam Auwal Musa Rafsanjani, read the position of the coalition, on Tuesday, in Abuja.

He said it seemed the president did not have the issue of anti-corruption as a priority in his agenda despite that corruption had eaten deeper into every sector of the nation’s society and crippling the country like an epidemic.
