Take corruption fight,
seriously, Lacson asks

BY CARLA GOMEZ

Negros Occidental Vice Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson yesterday urged everyone to take the fight against corruption seriously to prevent it from thriving.

The vice governor issued the call as Negros Occidental celebrates International Anti-Corruption Day at the Panaad Sports Stadium in Bacolod City this morning.

“People in government or in the private sector cannot do it alone. This problem is so serious that it could even affect the lives of those who think they are not part of the campaign to eradicate it,” Lacson said.

People in the public and private sectors, along with other stakeholders of the campaign to fight it, should be one in renewing the pledge to fight any and all forms of corruption, the vice governor said.

“Little tolerance in any of its forms could destroy our organizations and will leave us hoping to restore integrity and trust in our institutions,” he added.*CPG
