Wadata Media and Advocacy Centre (WAMAC), a not-for-profit organization with the support from the MacArthur Foundation has called for the intervention of Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) and legal Practitioners to vacate the perpetual injunction that became an impediment for anti-corruption agencies to investigate and prosecute Rivers State government and its agencies.

WAMAC also urged the community members to rise up and expose corrupt practices in their domain through awareness to inculcate ‘virtues of societal norms and values in schools to reorient the society on the peril of corruption.

This is contained in a communique signed by its Executive Director, Zubair A Idris and issued at a town hall meeting held on Saturday to amplify the fight against Corruption in local languages themed: ‘Corruption In Education sector In Nigeria: The Need For Moral Reorientation’. The event was held at NOVOTEL HOTEL & RESORT, in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.

The non-governmental organisation stressed that soceital corruption must be tamed with sincerity of purpose to complement the efforts of anti-corruption agencies, calling on the traditional and religious leaders to actively participate in the crusade against the endemic.

Other resolutions agreed upon by the participants are the establishment of a new mechanism to revitalize the education sector in the state and the modernization of school infrastructure and the employment of new teachers.
