President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, has described members of the National Assembly as the genuine fighters of corruption in Nigeria.
Lawan, according to a statement from his media office on Tuesday night, made the remark when he inaugurated Nigeria’s chapter of the Global Organisation of Parliamentarians Against Corruption in Abuja.
Lawan’s declaration is coming on the heels of the refusal of the federal parliament to disclose details of its annual budget despite mounting pressure from the media and the civil society groups.
The senate president noted the inauguration of GOPAC had reinforced the government’s anti-corruption campaign, the importance of transparency and accountability to good governance.
The chairman of the Senate Committee on anti-corruption, Senator Suleiman Audu Kwari corroborated that corruption has become a global problem that must be fought within that context.
