A former Assistant Inspector General of Police (AIG), Charles Ugomuo, has said that efforts at nipping corruption in the bud must be intensified, lamenting that political and judiciary corruption has reached a level where something must quickly be done to save the country.

Ugomuo spoke with newsmen yesterday shortly after the unveiling of ‘Corruption Tori Season 4’ organised by Signsture Communications Limited at Government Junior Secondary School, Mpape in Abuja.

He said, “The politicians rig elections, and the worst is now the judiciary. Let there be a change and let Nigeria move forward. You can’t be rigged out and you go to the judiciary and get a good ruling; it is cash and carry.

“Our politicians loot and carry the money outside the country and the money is no longer useful to this country and survivability is now very difficult,” he said.

On his part, the member of the House of Representatives for Igbo-Eze North/Udenu federal constituency in Enugu State, Dennis Agbo, however, said it was too early to rate the present administration of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu on fight against corruption.

The Chairman of the Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offences Commission (ICPC), Prof Bolaji Olufunmileyi Owasanoye, who was represented at the event, said the engagement of school children in the war against corruption was a strategy that must be adopted for a better future.

The ICPC boss advised that all hands must be on deck to win the war.

Olufunmileyi was represented by a commissioner in the commission, Hassan Salifu, who said, “The recruitment of these children in the fight against corruption is going to present a better future for Nigeria. We have been working hard and the combination of education and character is the best way to eradicate corruption from the root.”
