The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has urged corps members to join the commission after their service to tackle the menace of corruption in Nigeria.
EFCC Detective Superintendent, Seun Oluwakorede, speaking after Anti-Corruption rally which started at Stadium and terminated at Freedom park in Osogbo, the Osun state capital, tagged, “Nigerian Youths Walk Against Corruption’ which the commission held in partnership with National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), said, ” the program is to sensitise the people about corruption.
He said the youth hold about 70% of the population of this country, adding that “when you take a stand against corruption, the whole nation will be moved to do the right thing. Now we are taking a stand against corruption, we are planning and securing our future by this rally”.
“We are preaching integrity to Nigerians. So, we expect you to take it back to other youths that are not here to let them know too that we want to put an end to corruption and we have started. We are starting with youths. I expect some of you, after your service, to join us in this drive to eradicate corruption in our country.”
He noted that “It is not possible for us to employ all of you, but I can say that all of you can work for us anywhere you find yourselves, be it in government, bank, an oil company. You can take a stand against corruption even though it may not show during our time but in years to come, we will see that Nigeria will be better for us.”
Oluwakorede stressed that President Muhammadu Buhari remains committed to the fight against corruption and that the Acting Chairman of EFCC, Ibrahim Magu and his team are working hard to win the war against corruption.
