Earlier on December 24, Nurul Islam Nahid told the officials of the Directorate of Inspection and Audit (DIA) to limit their practice of receiving bribery while speaking as the chief guest at a laptop and certificate distribution ceremony in the capital. "I don’t have the guts to ask you not to take bribes, it would be meaningless.” “It is not only the officials who are thieves, but also the ministers. I am a thief too.  This is the way of the world. But it has to be changed,” Nahid said during the speech.
