Corruption rampant in local government administration says ICPC


The Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offences Commission has decried the prevalence of graft in local government administration across the country.

The Edo State ICPC Commissioner, Mr. Olukile Olusesan, disclosed this during his visit to the Chairman of the Ovia South-West Local Government Area, Mr. Destiny Enabulele, in Iguobazuwa on Friday.

Olusesan explained that local government councils in Nigeria had become fertile grounds for corrupt practices due to their weak internal structures which lacked internal control.

Olusesan stated, “Corruption is rampant in local government administration all over Nigeria. There are weak internal structures that encourage corrupt practices.

“The systems and procedures are too loose at the expense of a strict internal control. Majority of the staff are lackadaisical to the work they are employed to do.

“Many are complacent and are not ready to develop themselves to be in tune with international best practices.”

The ICPC commissioner, however, commended Governor Godwin Obaseki for creating a mechanism that ensured the emergence of credible council leaders in the 18 local government areas of the state.

In his address, the council chairman said that his administration would collaborate with anti-graft agency to restore confidence in local government administration.

He said,  “I want to assure you that we will not fail you because I have a very outstanding relationship with the ICPC. I will not want to drag my name in the mud, so that it does not rub on the ICPC.

“You have raised a very fundamental question that there are weak structures in local government administration that encourages corruption. You are not very far from the truth.

“Since you are aware, I will urge you to come up with possible solutions to strengthen this area, so that the 774 local government areas of the federation can truly represent the yearning of the people because the local government council is the closest to the people.”

Enabulele added, “Yes, there are bureaucratic processes that tend to slow down the system. But they are actually there to help strengthen the administrative system.

“We are looking at some internal mechanism to jerk up our internally generated revenue, but not to the detriment of our people; I do not encourage that.”
