Youths vow to fight corruption at TIB programme in Dhaka
More than 150 youths have vowed to fight corruption in the society and raise their voice at an oath-taking programme in Dhaka. Transparency International Bangladesh (TIB) organized the programme at the base of Central Shaheed Minar on Tuesday, to mark the upcoming International Anti-Corruption Day to be observed on December 9. Thanking the government for its decision to observe the day nationally, Dr Iftekharuzzaman, Executive Director of TIB said: "The government should grant freedom to organizations, such as the Anti-Corruption Commission and other different law enforcement agencies that are working to curb corruption in the society. "This move will boost political goodwill of the ruling party," he added. Iftekharuzzaman also urged the government to take proper initiatives to raise mass awareness against corruption throughout the country. Addressing the programme, former adviser to the caretaker government, and also Chairperson of TIB, Sultana Kamal said: "It is our moral duty to fight corruption, because as the people, we are also responsible for taking the first or the fifth position in international graft rankings." She also hoped that the message of curbing corruption from the society will spread among the young generation across the country through the youths who haven taken oath at the programme. She conducted the programme where more than a hundred youths from different educational institutes of Dhaka attended. International Anti-Corruption Day is observed annually on December 9, since the introduction of the United Nations convention against corruption on October 31, 2003 in a bid to make the world's economic system fair by containing corruption. The charter was signed by 87 countries, and since October 31, 2004, the UN-mandated International Anti-Corruption Day has been observed worldwide on December 9 every year with utmost significance. On July 11 this year, Bangladesh government decided to observe this day nationally.
