NGO Wants Anti-Corruption Clubs In CR Schools

Participants at the review meeting

Voices for Compliance and Legality, VOCAL, an anti-corruption project of the Catholic Caritas Foundation, in collaboration with the Calabar Centre for Justice and Peace Initiative, says it wants anti-corruption clubs formed in primary and secondary schools in Cross River State as a positive measure to help change the believe in an evolving generation that corruption is a normal way of life.

At her anti-corruption vanguards review meeting, held in Calabar, the 30 civil society organizations engaged in the project and represented at the meeting, further communicated through a communique that efforts will also be channeled at the ethical re-orientation of traditional and natural rulers who will in turn help ensure that the anti-corruption message gets to the people. Faith based organizations will also be engaged to help fight corruption.

For the Cross River State Government and her Ministries, Departments and Agencies, MDAs, efforts they say will be made to ensure that government and these MDAs, comply with the state’s procurement laws to stem corruption at that level. Stephen Tabi of Ekap Achi Foundations, who read the communique at the meeting chaired by David Missang Alobi of Friends of Environment and Technology Organization, was emphatic that if there ia a robust collaboration between civil society organizations, CSOs and government, donor funds that will help develop CRS will be attracted to the state. The project, supervised by the United Nations Development Project, UNDP is fully funded by the European Union.
