The Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has charged students in the country to imbibe the culture of integrity, transparency and honesty in their daily lives.
He gave the advice on Thursday, November 14, 2019, when students of Fariah Academy, Doveland High School and New Capital School, came on excursion to EFCC Headquarters Jabi, Abuja.
The EFCC boss, who was represented at the occasion by the Head, Creative Communications Unit, EFCC, Hajiya Aisha Musa, further cautioned the students against corruption. “Drop the bad attitudes and pick the good attitudes, be discipline and let integrity be your watchwords,” he said.
Explaining the roles and responsibilities of the EFCC to the students, Magu said, “The EFCC has been very effective. Former governors have been convicted and jailed, properties worth billions of naira have been seized, several billions of naira have been recovered and many internet fraudsters have been convicted.”
The EFCC boss through the Head, Enlightenment and Reorientation, EFCC, Amadin Samin, urged the students to always do the right thing and influence others to do the same. “You should also tell other people to do the right thing, even your parents because you are now EFCC ambassadors and foot-soldiers of the Commission.”
He further informed the students of the Whistle-blowing Policy of the federal government and urged them to embrace it and expose corruption through the policy.
“Whistle-blowing Policy is exposing corruption. Do not give false information, make sure the information you are providing is true,” he said.
