ICPC un­veils op­er­a­tional guide­lines for re­branded NAVC

Daily Trust - - NEWS -

The In­de­pen­dent Cor­rupt Prac­tices and other Of­fences Com­mis­sion (ICPC) yes­ter­day un­veiled its op­er­a­tional and train­ing man­u­als for its re­branded Na­tional Anti-Cor­rup­tion Vol­un­teer Corps (NAVC).

Chair­man of the Com­mis­sion, Ekpo Nta said the Corps was es­tab­lished in 2008 to serve as an av­enue for cit­i­zens to par­tic­i­pate ac­tively and di­rectly in the cam­paign against cor­rup­tion.

He said the new Corps would de­velop vol­un­teers for com­mu­nity ser­vice against cor­rup­tion, mo­bi­lize and ed­u­cate the cit­i­zens on cor­rup­tion and its ills, and also act as van­guard for good gov­er­nance in our so­ci­ety.

Nta said in 2014, the ICPC sus­pended ac­tiv­i­ties of the NAVC na­tion­wide be­cause in­ves­ti­ga­tion in­di­cated non-ad­her­ence to op­er­a­tional guide­lines and proper train­ing for vol­un­teers and lack of proper vet­ting of ap­pli­cants.

He pointed out that the short com­ings of the NAVC also in­cluded States for­ma­tions adopt­ing dif­fer­ent types of uni­forms and turn­ing the NAVC into a Para-mil­i­tary or­ga­ni­za­tion.
