Buhari, Nana Akufo-Addo, Others To Attend NSC Summit On Anti-corruption



Aminat Isah, Abuja

President Muhammadu Buhari, Ghanaian President, Nana Akufo-Addo, legislature, Financial institutions, and other critical stakeholders in the Maritime Industry are set to attend a One-Day Summit on anti-corruption.

The summit which is organised by the Nigerian Shippers Council (NSC), and other agencies of the Federal Ministry of Transportation in collaboration with the Economic and Financial crimes Commission (EFCC) according to the Executive Secretary of Nigerian Shippers’ Council, Barrister Hassan Bello has the theme “Zero Tolerance for Corruption in the Maritime sector.” owing to the worrisome capital flight and fiscal leakages which has continued to plague the sector.

The summit is based on the challenge that despite the gains recorded in the fight against corruption in all sectors of the economy, the maritime transport sector has remained vulnerable to unwholesome practices.

The objective of the joint Summit, therefore, is to highlight the areas of corrupt practices in the sector and collectively develop strategies to curb the menace threatening the economies of most African nations.

It is expected that a roadmap that would reduce considerably corrupt practices would be generated at the end of the Summit as well as sustainable structures that will guarantee predictability, efficiency and transparency in the industry.

The maritime and transport sectors are strong catalysts for socio-economic development of any nation particularly as it concerns businesses, markets, countries and people/citizens.
