The
Minister of Finance, Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, on Monday urged structural
institutions in federal, state and local governments to help curb
corruption in the country.
Okonjo-Iweala made the call at the launch of the World Bank Group Country Partnership Strategy 2014-2017 in Abuja.
She
said that the introduction of the Treasury Single Account System and
the Integrated Personnel Pay Roll System (IPPIS) to pay workers
electronically were part of government’s efforts to curb corruption.
“These are instruments to block leakages and it is only by systematically building institutions that you can fight corruption.
“Why
some developing countries are less corrupt is because they put systems
and processes in place with relevant punishments if people are found
wanting,” she said.
According to her, the new partnership strategy
of the World Bank will support government’s efforts to put strong
systems and institutions in place.
The minister added that corruption was a global thing that was not peculiar to any particular nation or race.
Okonjo-Iweala
said that corruption should not be tackled in abstract but effort must
be made to ensure that corruption was tackled at all levels.
“And
we need to work really hard in Nigeria to tackle corruption to make sure
that there is no impunity and find out the specific areas where it
exists and tackle it.”
