We all know that the best approach to any challenge is not to allow it happen at all. That is why we say, “Prevention is better than cure”. It is safer, cheaper and faster to prevent rather than sanction report or prosecute. All other approaches make more demand on scarce resources. That is why I think that this initiative by the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission (ICPC), to establish an academy that offer anti-corruption courses with emphasis on prevention is not only laudable but worthy of duplication. Prevention of corruption includes taking proactive steps to prevent corruption or minimise same. This will reduce crime and induce a change in attitudes.
