Executive Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission EFCC, Mr. Abdulrasheed Bawa has called on youths across the country to brace up for leadership roles in a quest to develop the nation.
Bawa gave the charge in Sokoto on Tuesday, January 17, 2023, while chairing a Conference on “Corruption in Nigeria: Trends and Patterns” at the Usmanu Danfodiyo University convened by the Zero Tolerance for Corruption club of the University.
According to him, youths should be prepared to tackle the challenges confronting the nation frontally and fashion ways of doing things differently, so as to achieve more positive results.
“As young people concerned about the future of their country, what is paramount for us now is not to continue whining about the enormity of the challenge of economic and financial crimes but come to a deliberate realization that things must be done differently”.
The EFCC’s boss, who spoke through the Deputy Commander of EFCC and Spokesman of the Commission, DCE Wilson Uwujaren, cautioned youths against corrupt practices, stressing that, corruption is the “most depressing problem and threat to development in any nation”.
The Conference was graced by lecturers of the University, and representatives of the Nigeria Police, Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Offences Commission, ICPC, and others.
