37.73 percent of Fiji’s population below the age of nineteen will benefit from the National Anti-Corruption Curriculum (NACC) that the Fiji Commission Against Corruption (FICAC) launched in Suva yesterday.
While officiating at the event Fiji’s Attorney General Aiyaaz Sayed-Khaiyum said that addressing corruption needs to take a holistic approach and the NACC will create awareness and sensitization from young people.
According to FICAC’s statistics there is a growing number of cases of young people’s involvement in corruption related activities.
FICAC’s Acting Deputy Commissioner Rashmi Aslam said this curriculum will ensure that Fiji’s future is corruption free.
FICAC’s Principal Corruption Prevention Officer Arti Naidu says that this initiative is designed to enhance aspects of good governance at primary and secondary school level and is a custodian responsibility for the commission to ensure that public integrity is intact.
