The Chairman, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Abdulrasheed Bawa, has enjoined corps members to shun all forms of cyber fraud and make a dedication to work their watchword in their various places of primary assignment.
He also admonished them to be foot soldiers in the anti-graft fight adding that the youths are critical stakeholders in the quest to find a lasting solution to the problem of corruption in Nigeria.
Bawa’s admonition was contained in a keynote address delivered on his behalf on Wednesday, December 1, 2021, by the Head, Public Affairs Department, Ilorin Zonal command of the Commission, Ayodele Babatunde, during the sensitization lecture for 2021 Batch C corps members at the NYSC Orientation Camp, Yikpata, Edu Local Government Area of Kwara State.
In the address entitled: “Economic and Financial Crimes Commission and the role of the youths in curbing corruption”, Bawa urged the corps members to be shining examples to others and champion the anti-corruption fight.
“Apart from the fact that the youth are considered as leaders of tomorrow, most economic crimes, especially cybercrimes are committed by young people. It therefore follows that young people must not be mere spectators in the anti-graft campaign. Rather, they should actually be the foot soldiers leading the mass rout of corruption and economic crimes out of our land,” he said.
The anti-graft czar thanked the NYSC for giving the Commission the opportunity to impact the corps members, while tasking the youths to stay away from acts of criminality.
