The Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption and the Ministry of Interior have concluded a one day interactive session in Abuja.

Professor Femi Odekunle who led other members of the committee to the Ministry of Interior, observed the overall importance of having the session with Interior Ministry considering the fact that agencies under the Ministry such as the Nigeria Police, Immigration and Prison Services are largely seen by many as the face of the Nigeria government, due to their broad-based interaction with the populace as well as their functionality in the Criminal Justice System.

Prof Odekunle in his opening remarks noted the need to articulate the nexus between corruption and poor service delivery with a view to tackling it head-long in order to boost safety and security needed for inflow of direct foreign investments.
Other members of the committee were unanimous on the need to reform the Ministry and it agencies, as this will not only help in isolating them from corrupt tendencies, but will also boost citizen’s confidence in government being the most visible face of government in democratic dispensation.

In his response, the host Minister, Lt Gen (Rtd) Abdulrahman Bello Dambazau admitted that the Interior Ministry and the five agencies under it are largely seen as the most visible face of government in a democracy.

While noting the critical importance of public perception, he reiterated his commitment to ensuring that these agencies conform with ethical service standards which revolve around Responsibility, Accountability and Transparency.

The robust session had in attendance the Ag Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Interior, Mr Muhammadu Maccido, as well the Comptroller Generals of the Nigeria Prison, Immigration, Federal Fire Service, and representatives of the Police and NSCDC.
