The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission Monday charged its 246 newly recruited personnel to be above board.
ICPC chairman, Bolaji Owasanoye, gave the charge during their passing-out-parade at the Nigeria Security and Civil Defense (NSCDC) training academy, Abuja, where they had undergone a six-week training.

“Your conduct must be above board because the ICPC mandate demands it. Integrity and discipline are essential character traits you must have to excel in your career. You must make integrity and honesty your watchword,” he said.
Owasanoye said the coming on board of the new staff would bridge the human capacity gap at the commission.
He also said the recruitment of the 246 staff, comprising senior and junior cadres, out of over 400,000 applicants, would enable the ICPC to tackle corruption in Nigeria.
NSCDC Commandant-General, Ahmed Audi, represented by Deputy Commandant Nnamdi Nwenyi, said the new staff had been rigorously trained and equipped to function as anti-corruption officers.
He the training had churned out well cultured, disciplined and loyal staff for ICPC.
