Anti-graft War: Magu Charges Youths To Be Change Agents
The acting Chairman of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, has urged Nigerian youths to be change agents, saying that the society expects so much from them as future leaders.
Magu, who also lamented the increasing wave of Internet fraud being perpetrated by youths nowadays, said it was time the youth embraced the ongoing fight against corruption with sincerity of purpose.
Speaking during the induction of Batches A and B 2017 corps members into the EFCC/ NYSC Community Development Service (CDS) Group at the NYSC Secretariat, Surulere, Lagos on Thursday, February 15, 2015, Magu charged the group members to be steadfast in their crusade against corruption.
Magu, who was represented by acting Head, Public Affairs Directorate( PAD), Lagos Zonal office, Babatunde Sulaiman, also assured the group of continuous support in its activities, adding that “It is heart-warming that you all have resolved to make Nigeria a better place to live in by partnering with the Commission.
“Anyone who is interested in lifting Nigeria or changing the narratives about the country will not hesitate to embrace the ongoing fight against corruption.
“With your resolve to lend a voice to the fight against corruption, there is hope of a better tomorrow for the country.
“You must be transparent in all you do now and after the service. As future leaders of this great nation, so much is expected from you.”
Also speaking, Dolapo Adeniran, a staff in the Commission’s Public Affairs Directorate, warned the group members to shun corruption and criminality.
She further urged the inductees to be anti-corruption ambassadors, adding that “corruption has become cankerworm that has eaten deep into the fabric of the society.”
Earlier in his remark, the State Coordinator, NYSC, Prince Mohammed Momoh, emphasized the importance of the group, saying that it could impact positively on the society.
Momoh lauded the Commission for its unrelenting efforts to sanitise the society by discouraging the commission of economic and financial crimes.
Also, the President, EFCC/ NYSC CDS Group, Johnson Adeyeye, expressed his gratitude to the Commission for its abiding support, adding that “We will always be the eyes and ears of the EFCC wherever we are.”
The highpoint of the ceremony was the oath of allegiance taken by the new crop of corps members who were inducted into the EFCC/NYSC CDS Group on the occasion.
