Public Complaints Commission vows to address reported injustice

The Public Complaints Commission has pledged its readiness towards addressing all cases of injustices reported to it by aggrieved members of the public.

In making the pledge, the commission urged all members of the public to endeavour to report all issues of administrative injustice, corruption and social injustice which affected them to the commission.

The chief commissioner at the commission, Emmanuel Ogbile, while speaking in Abuja, urged all aggrieved individuals to always avail themselves of the opportunity offered by the commission.

He recalled that the commission successfully investigated previous complaints against ministries and private organisations on various issues that include non-payment of pensions, wrongful termination of appointment, delay in payment of terminal benefits and unfair labour practises.

Ogbile pledged that the commission would intensify efforts to reach out more to the public.

To achieve results, he said the commission had launched a call centre with toll free number so that members of the public could swiftly reach it with their complaints.

He noted that through previous intervention of the commission, peaceful coexistence was restored to communities.
