David Mark threatens corrupt officials with sack 4 years ago 4

Senate President David Mark says the National Assembly will ensure the sack of any member of the Public Complaints Commission found to have taken bribe.

Mark gave the warning in Abuja on Monday while inaugurating the 37-member commission.

He said the need for them to refrain from corrupt practices became imperative because they are the ombudsman of the country.

David said the members risked being sacked if found to be incompetent, partial or show bias in the discharge of their official duties.

"We expect  that the commission would follow our footsteps by being bold, courageous, fair, and just to everybody regardless of creed, tribe and tongue.”

The Senate president advised them to treat all petitions and complaints promptly, fairly and justly. He also advised them to be dedicated and not to allow internal rancour, unnecessary bureaucracies or wrangling to disrupt their work.

He advised the members to collaborate with EFCC, ICPC and other stakeholders in discharging the commission’s mandate.

The clerk of the National Assembly, Alhaji SalisuMaikasua, noted that strengthening the commission would promote government’s transformation agenda. Home Page
