Promotion of ICPC Activities Through the Inauguration of ACTU in ARCN

Promotion of ICPC Activities Through the Inauguration of ACTU in ARCN

As the saying goes ‘Success has many friends”, this was eloquently attested to by the good works of the ED CRIN within his short stint in the Institute. Little wonder the Executive Secretary (ES), Agricultural Research Council of Nigeria (ARCN), Professor Garba Hamidu Sharubutumni, directed the Head, Protocol and Publicity, ARCN, Mr. Kayode Aiyedogbon, for a space in the CRIN Herald for the periodic showcase of the activities of ARCN.

According to Mr. Aiyedogbon, a high powered team from the Independent Corrupt PracticesCommission (ICPC) led by Barrister Udofia paid an epoch making visit to the Council on August 17, 2021. The ES welcomed the August visitors and appreciated their visit. He put the Council’s activities in perspective as well as highlights her modus operandi. He equally informed ICPC that the inauguration of Anti-Corruption Transparency Unit (ACTU) is geared towards promotion of the activities of the commission by his leadership. Prof Sharubutu reiterated that there are practically no activities being carried out in the Council without the input of ICPC including the recruitment of CEOs of NARIs and FCAs which is to the admiration of the Hon. Minister. The ES stated further that as committed Nigerians, they are determined to abide by the laws. In conclusion, the ES solicited for advice from ICPC in areas they are prone to making mistakes. In his brief remark, the ARCN ACTU chairman, Mr. Abdullahi Adamu appreciated the ES for his presentation and noted that they have uncovered all for ICPC to properly guide them. The Director for Research (DR) in ICPC, Barr. Udofia, in his remark expressed appreciation for all the works ES is doing in the council. He expressed shock and was overwhelmed with the developmental ongoing activities at the Council. Barr. Udofia counselled that ARCN should endeavour to do more advocacies to the public, farmers’group and other government agencies. The DR opined that ICPC is not only about arrest but is saddled with basic functions such as enforcement, prevention of corruption, monitoring as well as advocacy. He thanked the ARCN for receiving them and hopes they will have smooth working relationship. In his vote of thanks, the Director of Admin, ARCN, Dr. Edeki John Enesi, on behalf of the ES and staff of the Council, expressed appreciation for the fruitful time and noted that the interface has been very effective. He declared that he was very impressed with the visit and honestly looked further to more of such while stating that as a Council, the ICPC will soon be using ARCN as a model as they are determined to put to work all they have been told.
