Sultan spoke in Sokoto at the zonal dialogue with stakeholders on the National Ethics and Integrity Policy, organized by the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, in collaboration with the Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) for the north-west zone.
He also stated that the founders of the Sokoto Caliphate had written many books on corruption and how the menace can be addressed using Islamic ways.
The Sultan urged Nigerian leaders to obtain copies of the books, in order to be guided on how to tackle corruption.
Ibrahim Alkali, zonal head of ICPC in charge of Sokoto, Kebbi and Zamfara States, noted that the national ethics and integrity policy is a child of necessity as “it was conceived and delivered out of the urgent need to resuscitate and rejuvenate our lost values of honesty and integrity as a nation.”
