A statement issued by the Outreach and Information Officer of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) Nigeria, Sylvester Tunde Atere  said the stakeholders made the call at an event to commemorate the International Anti-Corruption Day in Abuja.
It said over 20 government agencies involved in combating corruption were in attendance. Chair of the Inter-Agency Task Team on Anti-Corruption (IATT) Mr Ledum Mitee said Nigeria needs to do more than passing laws on fighting corruption.
“There is an urgent need to adopt a holistic strategic approach to fighting corruption,” the statement quoted him as saying.
Country Representative of UNODC Mariam Sissoko said the organization is supporting 12 national institutions involved in the fight against corruption in Nigeria through the ongoing European Union (EU) funded “Support to Anti-Corruption in Nigeria” project.
She said: “We are ready to support the efforts in coordinating the implementation of the National Anti-Corruption Strategy once it is approved by the Federal Executive Council.”
Representative of the European Union at the event, Alan Munday, said the EU would like to see “a stronger fight against corruption, no inter-agency conflict, institutions following international best practice, agencies with genuine independence and adequate funding to carry out their mandates, and an end to impunity and the abuse of legal process to delay cases.”
