Calabar — A Non Governmental Organisation, Catholic Caritas Foundation of Nigeria (CCFN) has said that the country should make public offices less attractive so that corruption will not thrive anymore.
In a statement signed by the Executive Secretary of CCFN, Rev. Father Evaristus Bassey, to mark the World Humanitarian Day in Calabar, the organisation said corruption is one of the greatest causes of poverty in the country, and therefore the greatest cause of humanitarian crises.
The group charged the Federal Government to make effective use of the nation's resources to tackle humanitarian crises arising from corruption and insecurity.
It also urged government at all levels to strengthen systems, processes and institutions to ward off corruption in public offices.
"Presently, CCFN is responding to the current Sahel food insecurity crisis in four northern states in Nigeria. It started with a pilot in Sokoto State, where 275 households are receiving cash voucher support to enable the most vulnerable in those communities access food items from the market. The food support program will be extended to three more states," the group said.
