Speaker Dogara calls on GOCOP to fight corruption

The Speaker, Nigeria House of Representatives, Hon. Dogara Yakubu, has called on the Guild of Corporate Online Publishers (GOCOP) to assist government in its fight against corruption in Nigeria, ITRealms reports.

The Speaker who was represented by Hon. Abdulrasaq Namdzi from Adamawa at the formal launch of GOCOP at Eko Hotel & Suites Lagos, said the fight against corruption is what the Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari sees as his priority, saying that those at the hallowed chamber would work with the group to get the best for the nation.

He recalled the initial pessimism over the emergence of online publishing as to whether it would survive or not in the presence of traditional media saying that it is commendable that today the two platforms are growing in leaps and bounds.

ITRealms also reports that the lawmaker urged GOCOP to maximize the potential of online publishing to partner with government and beam their searchlight on corrupt members of the public, saying the association is capable of checkmating corruption in Nigeria.

The lawmaker pointed out that what matters in lawmaking is the quality of the law which is a product of thorough research, added that they will also assist the group in supporting the business aspect of online publishing.

ITRealms equally reports that GOCOP president, Malachy Agbo who had earlier welcomed members and guests to the event, emphasized the crucial role of the media in information dissemination, revealing that acceptance of online publishing in Nigeria of today has become massive, advising people with the passion to go online.

Agbo also stated that part of the reason for the formation of GOCOP was to ensure self cleansing in order to bring credibility to the platform, even as he admitted that self sanitization is always a difficult task.

“With the Cyber law signed into law at the twilight of the past administration GOCOP is well position to succeed in its operation,” he declared.
