Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption, PACAC, Invites ANEEJ
Sequel to the Anti-Corruption Summit held in May 2016 and organised by former British PM, David Cameron, together with follow-up anti-corruption activities embarked upon by the Africa Network for Environment and Economic Justice, ANEEJ, the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption, PACAC, has invited ANEEJ to be part of a think-tank which will facilitate the effective engagement of relevant stakeholders in Mr Buhari’s administration.
PACAC was established by President Muhammadu Buhari in August, 2015 to assist in the anti-corruption combat. Its mandate is to advise the government.
In a letter signed by Prof. Bolaji Owasanoye, Executive Secretary of the PACAC, ANEEJ will be part of the think-tank of top NGOs in Nigeria which will take part in a one-day interactive session planning a broad range of activities for the year 2017. Specifically, the PACAC seeks to:
- elicit objective feedbacks from CSOs on PACAC’s activities for the last one year;
- get constructive suggestions on how to make PACAC more effective within the next one year; and
- to promote CSOs involvement in the fight against corruption.
The interactive session will hold at the Rockview Hotel Abuja 20th October, 2016, from 10.00 am.
Prior to this meeting, the PACAC will also interface with the National Assembly on the 18th and 19th October 2016. Tagged National Conference on Role of the Legislature in the fight against Corruption, this meeting seeks to bring the executive and legislative arms of government together to discuss and proffer solutions in the Buhari administration fight against corruption in Nigeria.
Executive director the Rev David Ugolor, senior advisor of the African Bar Association on Corruption and Governance and graduate of the University of Sussex Centre for the study of Corruption and Governance, UK, is billed to attend all of the events on behalf of ANEEJ.
