05 Oct ICPC honours policeman who rejected $200,000 bribe
The Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission on Tuesday honoured a Superintendent of Police, Daniel Amah, with the 2022 Public Service Integrity Award.
Amah was honoured for rejecting the sum of $200,000 to drop a robbery case, and following up with investigations until the culprit was prosecuted.
The award was part of the activities at the Fourth National Summit on Diminishing Corruption in the Public Sector held at the State House, Abuja, on Tuesday.
President Muhammadu Buhari who was present at the event also commended Amah for his integrity.
“I also commend the Chairman, ICPC, the Secretary to the Government of the Federation and the Registrar of JAMB, for organizing this summit and bringing together the three arms of Government, MDAs and other stakeholders to deliberate on corruption in the educational sector of Nigeria,” Buhari said.
Buhari noted that he was pleased to have participated in each of the previous summits organized by the current Board of the ICPC, in collaboration with the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, targeting different aspects of the administration’s commitment to fight corruption.
