Nigeria will be greater when we all stop corruption ? Jonathan
« on: September 23, 2014, 10:44:22 AM »

President Goodluck Jonathan on Monday urged Nigerians to rid the country of all forms of corrupt practices if they truly wanted its growth and development.

The President, who is away for the 69th UN General Assembly, made the call in his speech at the opening ceremony of the 2014 Annual National Management Conference of the Nigerian Institute of Management (NIM) held in Warri, Delta

Represented by the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Aviation, Mr. Yemi Adelekun, the nation?s leader charged the NIM to sustain its current drive to ensure professionalism among its practitioners.

He said: ?To set this country on the path of greatness and prosperity, complete elimination of all forms of corrupt practices must be in the front burner of our collective consciousness always.

?The Transformation Agenda, you will agree with me, is a clear demonstration of my administration?s sincere intention to leave a lasting legacy that will be a reference point for subsequent administrations.

?You will agree with me that a great nation evolved through great leadership built on good governance, this is our motivation and value proposition?.

Delivering a Keynote address at the event, the Delta State governor, Dr Emmanuel Uduaghan, advocated the strengthening of institutions in order to achieve national goals of democratic governance and sustainable development.

Represented by the state?s Commissioner for Works, Solomon Funkekeme, the governor said the judiciary and its appendages such as the Economic Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) and the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCBC), should be manned by persons with technical expertise and moral competence.
