Religious leaders urged to help in fight against corruption

- Advertisment -

Lagos Zonal Head, Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission, (ICPC), Shintema Binga, has urged religious leaders to be involved in the crusade against corruption.

Binga made the call, during a consultative forum organised by the ICPC for leaders of the Christian faith in Lagos.

She said the leaders were in the best position to propagate the crusade, because of their large followership.

The zonal head advised church leaders to always preach against unethical behaviour such as bribery and corruption.

Similarly, Binga also tasked the Muslim faithful to imbibe the spirit of probity and accountability as a way to serve Allah and humanity.

The anti-graft operative made the assertion during at a public lecture organised in Lagos by the commission for students of secondary schools in the South-West under the aegis of the Islamic Educational Trust.

The organization urged students to cultivate personal integrity, avoid falsification of records and other unethical behaviour and called on them to raise awareness against corruption.
