Quipped by the need to refocus attention on a comprehensive preventive approach to combating corruption in Nigeria, the Anti-Corruption Academy of Nigeria (ACAN), a training arm of the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC), is set to commence post-graduate professional programmes in corruption prevention.
This was disclosed recently during the formal presentation of a proposed curriculum for the programme of study developed by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) Adviser on Corruption Prevention, Professor Victor O. Ayeni, at ACAN in Keffi, Nasarawa State.
In a statement by the commission spokesperson, Mrs Rasheed Okoduwa .the main thrust of the curriculum which would be known as the Post-Graduate Programme in Corruption Prevention (PGPCP) is to move focus away from purely enforcement and moralizing approaches to a preventive approach to combating corruption and related crimes.
According to the statement ,the proposed PGPCP which would be a three-phase course, covering a certificate, Diploma and Masters Degree package, would offer potential benefits not just for Nigeria but other developing countries as well.
