Prof Attahiru Jega, the former Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, (INEC) has advised African countries to re-strategize their approaches to the fight against corruption.
The ex-INEC boss gave the advise while reviewing a book titled: “Curbing Electoral Spending” launched by the Economic and Financial Crime Commission on Monday in Abuja.
The launch was to mark the 2019 International Anti-Corruption Day organised by the commission in collaboration with Nigeria Shippers Council, Maritime and Transport Stakeholders.
“Here in Nigeria, where corruption is in the increase compared to other African countries, we need to take the fight seriously.
“It is a day for sober reflection for us and for reviewing our experiences and restrategise to find better ways and means of improving the successes in the fight against corruption,” he said.
