The Chairman of the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission, Musa Aliyu has told Nigerians that he would be appearing in court to defend anti-corruption cases involving the commission.
Aliyu, a former Attorney-General of Jigawa State before his appointment as ICPC Chairman made this known during a media chat.
Aliyu said, “I’ll lead by example. By the grace of God, I intend to be appearing in cases of ICPC (in court). I don’t think there was ever a chairman of ICPC who appeared in court, but I’ll be the first. I am deeply committed to realising a vision for Nigeria where the principles of integrity, accountability, and transparency are not mere ideals but are deeply woven into the very fabric of our society.”
Musa further noted that the fight against corruption requires a collaborative, multi-sectoral approach and would require support from diverse stakeholders to pool perspectives, expertise, and resources.
He further hinted that the ICPC’s fight against corruption would henceforth be based on the use of technology to fast-track the process.
