The Governor of Lagos State, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, has emerged winner of the Transparency & Good Governance Merit Award (TGMA) 2016 of the Citizen Anti Corruption Volunteer Corps (CACVC), a coalition of NGOs fighting corruption in Nigeria.

A statement issued on Wednesday in Lagos signed by CACVC National Chairman, Comr.

The statement said that Governor Ambode would be conferred with the award during a ceremony to be held at LTV Compound, Agidingbi Ikeja, on December 18, 2016. It disclosed that the Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Mudashiru A. Obasa, would also be presented with the Anti-Corruption Ambassadorial Certificate during the event.

CACVC said that the Award Keynote Lecture would be delivered by the DG, Change Ambassadors of Nigeria, Prof. Chris Nwaokobia Jnr., who would speak on the theme, “The Quest for Good Governance, The Lagos Experience”.

It said that there would be other speeches, including by Bar. Monday Onyekachi Ubani, Second Vice President, Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), who would speak on “Anti-Corruption: Role of Judiciary In Nigeria”, while All Progressives Congress (APC) Lagos State Publicity Secretary, Engr. Joe Igbokwe, would speak on “The Raging War Against Corruption As Reinvigorated By APC Government”.

The statement said that Dr. Jude Akagbusum, President, The Institute of Good Governance of Nigeria, would equally present a paper on “The Menace of Corruption, Consequences and its Eradication in Nigeria.”

It congratulated Governor Ambode and Speaker Obasa, while urging other elected public officers across the country to emulate their good examples so as to fast-forward the Nigeria’s exit from the present stifling economic recession.
