He urged the ACTU to guide and direct civil servants and contractors whom he said,  ought to be transparent in order for all to justify the funds entrusted to them to carry out their statutory duties.

Earlier in his address, the Head of Unit, Anti Corruption and Transparency Unit, Federal Ministry of Works, Mr. Alexander  Paman explained that the Third Eye Billboard means the human conscience, which should be allowed to work in a positive way for the benefit of the masses and the nation at large.
