The menace of corruption in Pakistan is neither government nor party-centric but it is system-centric. This was said by Brig. (retd) Musaddiq Abbasi, Director-General (DG), Awareness and Prevention, National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Wednesday.


He was delivering alecture on “Corruption and Accountability in Public Sector”, arranged by the Department of Governance and Public Policy of the National University of Modern Languages (NUML), said a press release issued by the institute.

He said that absence of political will and absence of honesty and selflessness to the accountability by the top leadership were the main reasons behind failure of accountability in Pakistan. Vibrant media, a pro-active judiciary, NGOs and global watch dogs could be helpful to get the society rid of corruption, he added.
