NDIC seeks collaborations on Anti Corruption strategy

MD/CEO of NDIC, Bello Hassan 

The Chairman of the Nigeria Deposit Insurance Corporation (NDIC) Board, Mrs Ronke Sokefun has called for stronger collaboration on the implementation of the National Anti-Corruption Strategy (NACS) towards strengthening the fight against corruption in the country.

Mrs Sokefun made the call in Abuja at a sensitization seminar for the Board and Management of the Corporation facilitated by the National Anti-Corruption Strategy Secretariat.

The NDIC Chairman said collaboration through effective sensitization on components of the NACS, particularly the National Ethics & Integrity Policy, and the Freedom of Information Act would go a long way in enhancing the buy-in and ownership of the anti-corruption campaign of the Federal Government amongst the top echelon of government agencies.

The Managing Director of the Corporation who was represented by the Executive Director Operations, Mallam Mustapha Ibrahim stressed the commitment of the NDIC to sound corporate governance which informed the invitation of the NACS secretariat to host the sensitization seminar for the Board and Management.

In his presentation, the Deputy Director, Public Institutions Ethics & Values of the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC), Mr John Ode lauded the NDIC Board for being the first institution in both the public and private sector to accept and also take the NACS sensitization to the board level.

Mr. Ode said the collaboration with NACS and the emergence of NDIC as the best agency in the 2021 ICPC Ethics & Integrity Scorecard was a testament to the Corporation’s commitment to mainstreaming anti-corruption policies and practices into its operations.
