Senate President, Abubakar Bukola Saraki, Monday called for closer collaboration between private organizations with the Federal Government for an effective fight against corruption. Saraki gave the charge when he played host to the executive members of the Institute of Directors (IOD), led by its President/Chairman of Governing Council, Mr. Samuel Yemi Akeju, in his office in Abuja.
He said it is part of the 8th Senate’s Legislative Agenda to contribute maximally towards the elimination of corrupt tendencies in the country. A statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Sanni Onogu, said that Saraki told his guests that the Executive arm of government is on the same page with the National Assembly in resuscitating the economy, ensuring adequate security and alleviating unemployment across board.
The Senate President was quoted to have said, “Our agenda in the Senate and that of the present administration is geared towards improving the economic situation of our dear country, adequate security and fight against corruption.
