The Student Union members made this pledge during a courtesy visit to the Ibadan Zonal Office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC on Thursday, 9th August, 2018. They were full of acolytes for the current leadership of the Commission. “We are here to appreciate the passion and commitment of the Commission to the fight against corruption particularly in Oyo State and in the country as a whole and to drum up support for the efforts of the EFCC. It is important we foster a relationship and partnership with the Commission as well as learn from the leadership experiences” they said.
Welcoming the Union members, on behalf of the Acting Executive Chairman, Ibrahim Mustapha Magu, the Ibadan Zonal Head, Abdulrasheed Bawa appreciated them for finding time to visit the Commission despite their busy schedules as students. “I want to thank you for deeming it fit to visit us to appreciate and associate with what we are doing”, he said.
The leader of the delegation, Comrade Oke Waiu Ayinde passionately emphasized the need for all stakeholders including the youths to be part of the fight against corruption.
“It is imperative to let you know what we stand for and to learn from your experiences on how well we can fight corruption.
