Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, represented by the Ministry’s Director of Press and Public Relations yesterday, in the Nigerian capital, Abua, at the Management and Staff Sensitisation Seminar organised by the Anti-Corruption and Transparency Unit (ACTU) of the ministry, urged civil servants to shun corruption in order to enjoy a peaceful and stress free retirement, devoid of incessant invitations from anti-corruption agencies.
Fashola advised participants to be transparent and obey the rules and regulations guiding the operations of their schedules as they carry out their assignments.
The seminar tagged “Corruption Trends in Public Service, Causes and Impact on National Development” was organised to promote a corruption-free service delivery by officials.
“Corruption is a crime and urged participants to shun it in a bid to live a peaceful retirement life devoid of incessant invitations from anti-corruption agencies after retirement, the Minister said.
“Adopting a corrupt-free attitude in the course of duty would enhance Nigeria’s overall development as a nation”, Fashola said.
