Loopholes are being blocked to avoid corruption-FG

 In a bid to end corruption in Nigeria, the Minister of Budget and National Planning, Senator Udo Udoma Udo, has said the Federal Government is putting in place measures that will make it difficult for corruption to thrive in the country.

He said the government was determined to tackle the high level of corruption in the country, adding that this was one of the critical factors affecting projects and plan implementation.
In fighting corruption, the minister stated that the government would be focusing on addressing the level of inefficiencies in the system by blocking of leakages.
Udoma, according to a statement by his Media Adviser, Akpandem James, said this during an interactive session with Civil Societies Organisations on the 2017 budget.
He said the budget had been designed to deliver economic and social benefits outlined in the Economic Recovery and Growth Plan, therefore effective collaboration was key in achieving the developmental objectives of the government, which was where the civil society was critical.
The minister said nation building was a process that required the involvement of everybody, pointing out that the role of the CSOs was key, as contractors perform better when they were effectively supervised and monitored.
According to him, effective monitoring will ensure the completion of funded projects and achievement of the ERGP objectives as well as the Sustainable Development Goals.
On the focus of the 2017 budget, the minister stated that it was based on the ERGP, a medium term recovery and growth plan that reflects the government’s strategy to reposition and diversify the economy for sustained growth.

Udoma gave an assurance that the government would deepen engagement with the civil society as it was committed to open government principles and accountable governance.
