Mr Ewa Udu, the Head, Legal Unit of the Public Complaints Commission (PPC), has urged the Federal Government to support the commission with funds and operational vehicles to discharge its duties effectively.
Udu told newsmen on Monday in Abuja that inadequate funds and operational vehicles were seriously affecting the commission's operations.
``The commission needs enough vehicles to move around and to meet with respondents both in Abuja and in the states. If there are enough vehicles, the work will be faster and easier.
``Also, we need money to make the work effective, especially in our various zonal offices in the states.
``The national secretary is trying his best to see that fund given the commission was managed well but it is not enough.
``Good job brings good result and a good job cannot be done without adequate finance.''
He restated the commission's readiness to reform the country, saying that persons who felt aggreived could seek redress through it.
He added that ``the commission also has the power to investigate the administrative procedures of courts.
``However, the commission needs to employ more lawyers so that they can help in monitoring some of the activities in courts.
``There are some cases which should not be filed in courts as the commission can attend to such cases and can help to reduce the work of magistrates and judges,’’ he said.
Udu said that the commission has commissioners in the 36 states of the federation, with a chief commissioner who monitors the activities of the commissioners.
