The National Coordinator, Initiative for Mass Education Against Corruption (IMEAC) Elder. Friday Sani has called on all Nigerians to join hands and support the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari to succeed in his fight against corruption. 

Addressing a press conference in Kaduna, ‎the Kogi born legislator said fighting corruption at this moment of our national life is utmost as corruption has eaten the country deeper than poverty, insecurity and tribalism.

According to him, raising allegation of corruption against the leadership of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) at this point when the fight against corruption is gathering momentum is unacceptable. Saying “we therefore reject it in its entirety. ”

‎”IMEAC has in the past decade been in the forefront of vigorous and robust campaigns against corruption, bad governance, insecurity, marginalisation and all social-political challenges that bedevilled our nation. 

“We are approaching the fight against corruption from a multi prolonged strategy that includes; advocacy, outreach, networking, lobby, legal intrusion and moral persuasion, each being applied at different levels and pedigree of relevance. 

 ‎”Corruption is a national malaise and a social plague. It brought shame reproach and disrepute to us and our nation. We must not relent in our efforts to tackle this great monster.” Sani noted. 

He expressed dismay over the way both local and international media are portraying Nigeria, adding that it projects “us ‎as a people lacking in honesty and integrity “.

IMEAC coordinator however, craves the indulgence of all media stakeholders for their partnership as it remains key in actualising ‎the vision and goals of the organisation. 

He challenged the Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) to do more than it had ever done before and advised the government to approach it’s anti-corruption measures with new approaches and fresh strategies.
