The Chairman, Independent Corrupt Practices and Other related Offences Commission, ICPC, Professor BolajiOwasanoye, says collective action is needed to stem the tide of corruption and illicit financial flows, IFFs, out of Africa.

Prof. Owasanoye who stated this while delivering a keynote address at a one-day seminar organized by the Abuja Chapter of the Society of Women Accountants of Nigeria, SWAN, entitled: ‘’Building Institutional Resilience to Reduce Corruption and Illicit Financial Flows’’, said a collective action is a recipe for the continent’s survival.

The Chairman represented by the Commission’s Board member, Mr. OlubukoloBalogun, lamented the fact that African countries including Nigeria were particularly affected by huge losses through IFFS, thereby depriving the continent of the much-needed resources for development.
