International Anti-corruption Day” i.e. 8th December, 2017.

 

A system free from all forms of corruption and injustice is the foundation of a stable democratic society. That is why Pakistan is in the vanguard of the international community in its struggle for elimination of corruption at the official and public level. We believe that a corruption-free society is possible only if the reasons behind social evils are seriously examined and work is done to eradicate them. History shows that the basis of this is found in greed and lust for money which is provided impetus by lawlessness, nepotism and growing desires.

            Pakistan came into being under a grand universal philosophy the purpose of which was to provide justice and ease to the people. This is the reason that after its creation, Pakistan in a very short period was able to create an important place for itself by achieving many landmarks due to the untiring efforts of our elders. But the problems emerged when the rule of law weakened and lawbreaking elements grew. Pakistani nation is committed to achieve its rightful place in the comity of nations by overcoming this situation. Therefore, it is necessary that the anti-corruption system must be based on the principles of justice. On the occasion of International Anti-corruption Day, I commend the efforts of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) for organizing special ceremonies across the country and hope that this national institution will succeed in establishing a fair and equitable system to meet the nation’s expectations.
