Stop Offering Us Bribes, Police, FRSC Tell Nigerians
The Police and the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) on Tuesday urged Nigerians to stop offering their officers a bribe.
They also urged the public to report any officer who demands a bribe.
The two agencies were among participants at a one-day virtual stakeholder dialogue on “effective and sustainable strategies for curbing retail corruption” organised by the Presidential Advisory Committee against Corruption (PACAC).
PACAC Executive Secretary Prof Sadiq Radda said citizens have a critical role to play in ending petty (retail) corruption, most of which occur in form of bribery.
He believes retail corruption can be reduced when citizens are law-abiding and comply with the rules, and when institutions play their roles effectively.
“Cutting corners is why we have retail corruption. There are processes for getting things done. We should have respect for process and procedures,” he said.
