Buhari Presents Award To Police Officer For Rejecting $200,000 Bribe



On Tuesday, President Muhammadu Buhari gave an award to a member of the Nigeria Police Force for refusing a tempting bribe to drop a significant criminal case.
Superintendent Daniel Itse Amah, a well-known police officer, was said to have recently turned down an offer of $200,000 to drop an armed robbery case.
Amah, on the other hand, reportedly turned down the offer and continued the investigation, eventually catching the culprits and prosecuting them.
At the 4th National Summit on Minimizing Corruption in the Public Sector, which took place yesterday in Abuja, President Buhari praised the employees for upholding the service’s integrity.
The Nigerian leader released the following statement via his official Twitter account:This year’s Public Service Integrity Award winner is SUPERINTENDENT DANIEL ITSE AMAH of @PoliceNG. He turned down a $200,000 offer to drop an armed robbery case and continued investigating until the perpetrators were brought to justice.
“It was my pleasure to present him with the Award today in Abuja at the 4th National Summit on Diminishing Corruption in the Public Sector.”I commend the @icpcnigeria Chairman, SGF, and @JAMBHQ Registrar for organizing the Summit and bringing all relevant stakeholders together.
“Corruption in the Education Sector and on our Campuses, which takes many forms, was the focus of this year’s Summit:Payroll padding, also known as “ghost workers,” lecturers taking full-time appointments in more than one academic institution, including private institutions, lecturers writing seminar papers, projects, and dissertations for students for a fee, admission racketeering, and cash for marks/grades are just a few examples.
The problem of sexual harassment, on the other hand, has grown to alarming proportions.I commend @icpcnigeria for investigating and prosecuting sexual harassment in our educational institutions as an abuse of power.I encourage them to keep doing everything they can to combat the scourge.
