The Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Lateef Fagbemi, says Federal Government has perfected measures to tackle corruption in negotiation and execution of contracts.
Fagbemi said this in Abuja at the sensitisation workshop on the revised guidelines on negotiation and drafting agreements by government parties to prevent corruption, Illicit Financial Flows (IFFs) and ensure sustainable development, organised by ICPC.
According to him, a major source of leakage in national purse is the increasing utilization of litigation and arbitration, to foist contracts and agreements that were ab initio procured through bribery and corruption on Nigeria.
He stated that key to fighting corruption and IFFs was the methodology of approach, as law and order approach alone is not sustainable, noting that a dose of well-tailored mixture of governance reforms, prevention and sanctions will be introduced in the process.
Fagbemi further explained that the Ministry of Justice was committed to supporting initiatives undertaken by MDAs which were aimed at engendering transparency, efficiency and preventing corruption.
