ICPC Desk Officer for Uniben ACTU

The Independent Corrupt Practices Commission (ICPC)‎, has stepped up campaign against corruption by inaugurating the Anti-corruption and Transparency Unit (ACTU) at the University of Benin (INIBEN).
The Commissioner ‎of ICPC in Edo/Delta, Mr Olukile Olusesan, during the inauguration, charged members of the unit to be alive to their responsibility.
He noted that ACTU was not set up to act as a parallel operational unit in the office of chief executives, but a complimentary instrument to checkmate corrupt practices in institutions.
He said to fight institutional corruption in the Nigerian system, there must be functional and value driven linkages between anti-corruption agencies and institutions.
Olusesan added that the responsiveness to attitudinal challenges by members of the committee will go a long way in the process of natural rebirth.
‎He said more ACTU committees would be set up in other institutions and government agencies in the state, starting with the University of Benin Teaching Hospital (UBTH) on Thursday.
The UNIBEN ACTU members are made up of 11 senior lecturers drawn from various faculties of the university and two other non teaching staff members of the institutions.
The unit is under the chairmanship of Prof Ahbor Ighoroje of the Department of Physiology as chairman.
Other members of the committee are: Prof. D.I. Teilanyo, Prof. (Mrs) A.O. Aisen, Prof (Mrs) C. Okiemen, Dr Friday Ezomo and Mr. Jotham Edoreh.
Responding, Prof Ighoroje, assured of the preparedness of the committee to work with the ICPC in order to tackle corruption.
