ABUJA – A delegation from the Kenyan House of Assembly on Wednesday in Abuja called on the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) to assist the assembly in its bid to strengthen anti-corruption campaign in Kenya
A statement issued by the Spokeswoman of the CCB, Mrs Iyabo Akinwale, the leader of the delegation, Mr Njoroge Baiya, as making the plea when the delegation visited the CCB Chairman, Mr Sam Saba.
Baiya, who is the Chairman, Constitution Implementation Committee of the Kenya House of Assembly, said the visit was to tap from Nigeria’s experience in the fight against corruption.
“We are here to seek ideas on the strategies adopted by CCB in the fight against corruption in Nigeria.”
Baiya said the visit was also to identify areas Kenya could partner with Nigeria in view of Nigeria’s recent rating as the largest economy in Africa.
In his remarks, Saba commended the delegation for the visit.
He said that the use of asset declaration forms by the bureau as part of its anti-corruption drive had yielded positive results.
Saba, however, identified lack of financial independence and inadequate manpower as the major challenges facing the bureau. (NAN)
