The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) has embarked on several interventions to sensitize workers in the aviation industry on the need to fight corruption in the sector.
As part of the strategy, the commission organized the maiden anti-corruption training for aviation sector workers at the Anti-Corruption Academy of Nigeria (ACAN), Keffi, Nasarawa State.
The workshop drew participants from aviation agencies including NAMA, FAAN, NCAA, AIB and NIMET. Others are the Nigerian Customs Service, Navy, Immigration, Airport Police, Cargo handlers, airlines etc.
Titled “Anti-corruption Ethics and Training,” the workshop also treated crucial topics such as Effective Communication: A Veritable Tool for Entrenching Transparency and Accountability; Work Ethics and Integrity in Public Service; Ethical Issues in the Aviation Sector: Departure and Arrival at the Airport and International Standards and Best Practices in aviation.
It will be recalled that the Federal Ministry of Aviation on the 9th of December, 2014 launched a partnership with ICPC for Anti-Corruption Initiative to improve processes in operations for better service delivery in the aviation sector.
