According to him, “We need to imbibe a culture of service which involves integrity, accountability and transparency, among others because everyone has a role to play in making the world a better place”.
Stating that one of the biggest forms of corruption destroying the country today is workplace corruption, Dr. Adekola disclosed that absenteeism, stealing time and resources among many others are some forms of corruption that must be avoided in the system.
