Why anti-corruption petitions fail in N/Assembly – Rep Akiolu

The Chairman House of Representatives Committee on Anti-Corruption, Kayode Moshood Akiolu, has said petitions on anti-corruption fail in the National Assembly due to the nature it is presented to lawmakers.

Akiolu representing Lagos Island Federal Constituency II, Lagos State, said this on Wednesday in Abuja, at a roundtable with citizens, CSOs and parliamentarians on improved oversight of anticorruption agencies, regulators and other stakeholders.

It was organised by the Civil Society Legislative Advocacy Centre (CISLAC), the National Chapter of Transparency International (TI) as part of the interventions of the ‘Strengthening Accountability Networks Amongst Civil Societies (SANCUS) Project in Nigeria’.
