The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission, ICPC, has advised corps members in Osun to join the fight against corruption and social vices in the country.

Mrs Winifred Ngboro, Head of Public Enlightenment and Education Unit, ICPC, Osun office, gave the advice in an interview with NAN today in Osogbo.
Ngboro, who explained the pivotal role of the ICPC in dealing with corruption-related practices in the country, said such concerted efforts would help reduce the rate of negative social vices.
According to her, the commission will not relent in spreading the crusade against any form of corruption in order to make the system free from such a menace.

“The ICPC’s mandate empowers it to conduct system studies within government agencies to ensure adherence to established procedures and protocols.
“Also, major functions of ICPC include enforcement, investigation of reported offences and the prosecution of culpable individuals,” she said.

Ngboro, however, said the commission would continue to partner with key government anti-graft agencies towards ensuring that the society was free from any form of corruption and indiscipline.
