Civil Society Groups Urge Swift Action Against Indicted Officials

A coalition of Civil Society Organisations (CSOs), led by the Network Against Corruption and Trafficking Initiative (NACAT), has called upon the House of Representatives Committee on Public Petitions to expedite its handling of petitions against indicted public officials.

Expressing their concerns over the delayed response to petitions highlighting alleged financial infractions by public officeholders, including money laundering, corruption, abuse of office, and false asset declarations, the CSOs emphasized the importance of restoring public trust in the government.

Iteveh Nurudeen, the Director of Public Relations for the group, stressed the significance of promptly addressing allegations of misconduct and financial impropriety to uphold justice and fairness.

The coalition highlighted the pivotal role of the House Committee on Public Petitions in ensuring accountability and urged its members to prioritize the resolution of petitions against indicted officials.

Nurudeen reiterated the group’s commitment to supporting the committee’s efforts and urged them to diligently address the submitted petitions and summon indicted parties for necessary actions.

Furthermore, the CSOs called upon President Tinubu to bolster his administration’s commitment to fiscal integrity and governance accountability by endorsing legislative measures aimed at combating corrupt activities that undermine the government’s reformative agenda.
