The Chairman, Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offences Commission, ICPC, Ekpo Nta, on Friday
said the ongoing anti-corruption crusade by the President Muhammadu
Buhari-led Federal Government has so far been successful because
the President has been exemplary.

In a statement by the ICPC, Nta who spoke on a television programme said the international community had
started reckoning with the anti-corruption crusade of the current
administration, adding that the fight is beginning to gain momentum

and Nigerians are beginning to key into the project.

The statement reads, ?The seriousness with which the war is being fought in Nigeria has been eliciting responses from countries that have been promising to offer assistance to Nigeria in its fight against corruption.

?ICPC has long taken preventive measures towards advancing the course of the fight against corruption
through the promotion of ethics and integrity from childhood. We
have also alluded to the launching of National Values Curriculum in
schools since 2007 to inculcate ethics in students at primary and
secondary schools, which is in collaboration with the Nigerian
Educational Research and Development Council.?

Nta noted that the anti-corruption fight
had also been generating interest from the grassroots in Nigeria as even local communities had willingly been reporting people they suspect as living above their means.

He cited an instance where before now
indigenes of some communities used to be hostile to operatives of the law enforcement and anti-corruption agencies, including ICPC, whenever they want to make arrests but is no longer the case.
