Dr Maikanti Baru, group managing director, Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has advocated a zero-tolerance approach towards corruption across the corporation
Speaking to all NNPC staff in a video message as part of World Anti-Corruption Day activities, he said that he would support any udea that could lead to a corruption-free NNPC.
"As staff of NNPC, you are expected to see something, say something and do something, so that together we can grow our corporation to the highest level of ethical consciousness," Dr Baru said in the statement. "The NNPC's message on World Anti-Corruption Day celebrations is brilliant and I am fully on board."
He said that the NNPC workforce is considered by management to be "veritable tools in the fight against corruption", adding that the fight against corruption will be won if all staff play their role. As well as urging NNPC staff to act if they come across corruption, he said governments, NGOs, the media and citizens around the world all had a part to play.
Dr Baru urged NNPC staff to take a creative approach to fighting corruption, such as using Twitter to share anti-corruption messages. World Anti-Corruption Day is observed every year on 9 December to raise public awareness about corruption and its effect on societies.
