EFCC Charges Corps Members To Embrace Anti-graft War
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has called on members of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) to embrace the ongoing war against corruption in order to secure a better future for the country.
Speaking during an interactive session with members of the EFCC/NYSC Community Development Service (CDS) Group on Thursday, January 25, 2018, the Zonal Head, Lagos,
Akaninyene Ezima, emphasized the importance the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration attaches to the fight against corruption, adding that “you must join hands with the Commission to stamp out this vice from our society.”
Ezima who received the group on behalf of the acting Executive Chairman, EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, thanked the corps members for partnering with the Commission in the anti-graft war.
He added that “The EFCC is the leading anti-graft agency in the country. So, you have not made a wrong choice by partnering with us. But the ideals, which the EFCC represents, must reflect in your behaviour wherever you are”.
He continued, “The EFCC is a brand; so, you are our brand ambassadors. We expect the best behaviour from you in your professional as well as personal capacities. We expect the highest standard of behaviour from you, even after you must have completed your service.”
He also assured the group of continuous support, adding that they must not allow the patriotic zeal in them to die after the service year.
In his response, Adeyeye Adebayo, President, EFCC/ NYSC CDS Group, thanked Magu for the opportunity given the group’s members to be partners in the fight against corruption.
Adebayo who led the delegation to the Lagos Zonal office, stated that the main objective of the group was to sensitize members of the society, especially youths, market women and other stakeholders, about the ills of corruption.
He also used the occasion to seek the Commission’s support towards the execution of the group’s projects which, according to him, “are aimed at supporting the Commission’s activities.”
“We are trying to expand our anti-corruption activities,” Adebayo added.
