Posted on February 14, 2020

Michael Nzekwe, Head of Assets Recovery and Forfeiture Department of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in Anambra State, has reiterated the need to inculcate tenets of anti-corruption in Nigerian youths.
Nzekwe stated this on Friday when he led officials of the EFCC, serving National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members and other stakeholders on an anti corruption walk in Awka, the state capital.
He told newsmen that the essence of the exercise was to sensitize the people on the need to shun graft, adding that the anti-corruption walk, which held nationwide, was to enlighten citizens about the dangers of corruption.
“Our youths are coming together for the first time to show solidarity to phasing out corruption in Nigeria and that is very encouraging”, Nzekwe said.
“With this walk, even the market women will realise why they should shun corruption and report people that engage in it.
“EFCC is empowered by the act that set it up to come up with strategies to fight corruption and that is what we are doing today. 
“We are here to create awareness among youths and it the first time Nigerian youths are walking against corruption.”
“We must kill corruption or else it will kill us. We want the youths to be ambassadors of anti corruption and from today, we have named them the Anti-Corruption Ambassadors.”

Anambra State NYSC Coordinator, Aremu Kehinde, in his remarks, noted: “For the first time, youths have come together to kill corruption. We hope that this singular exercise will make Nigeria great again.
“The youths in one voice have today spoken against corruption, and we believe that if Nigerians heed them, this country will be great again.”
The walk, which began at the Aroma Junction, Awka, had in attendance corps members, journalists, civil society organisations and security agencies.
