As a result, it urged the populace to band together in order to drive out corruption, which it referred to as a “hydra-headed monster.”

Speaking at a road walk in Uyo, the capital of Akwa Ibom State, to commemorate the 2023 International Anti-Corruption Day with the theme, “UNCAC @20: Uniting the World Against Corruption,” ACE-1 Bawa Hamidu Saidu, Zonal Commander of the EFCC, stated that in order to defeat corruption, people must band together, promote transparency, and make sure that institutions are strengthened.

As a people, we stand united against corruption. Together, we overcome corruption! And together, we occupy our proper position.

The zonal commander added that by uniting the World Against Corruption, the zone would ensure that corrupt individuals are called out regardless of social standing and operate without interference.

No matter which where we turn in Nigeria these days, corruption stares us in the face. It has a detrimental impact on the most vulnerable members of society and threatens all facets of environmental sustainability and human growth.

“With no regard to whose ox is killed, we are prepared to denounce dishonest individuals or groups, whether they be public or private. Fighting corruption is something we must all agree to do, and we must do it without intervention or mindless allegiance to any one political party, religion, race, or creed. Imagine a future where everyone is genuinely fighting corruption together, said Saidu.
