The chairman of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Abdulrasheed Bawa, has asked members of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), to join the agency in its war against economic and financial crimes.
He gave the charge Thursday in a lecture entitled “EFCC And The Role of Youth in Curbing Corruption” for members of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), 2022 Batch ‘C’ Stream II, at the NYSC orientation camp, Yikpata, Edu local government area of Kwara state.
Bawa’s sensitisation lecture was delivered by an assistant commander of the EFCC, Ayodele Babatunde, and head, Public Affairs Department of the Ilorin zonal office of the commission.
He admonished youth to be change agents by resisting the temptation of being lured into cybercrimes.
He warned that the end could be “perilous and shameful”.
The anti-graft czar also called on youth across the country to put the internet to more productive uses rather than employing it to commit crimes.
“There is no shortcut to wealth and fame. The fact that the rate of unemployment is high should not be an excuse to resort to crime. Acts of criminality might deliver wealth in the short term but ultimately, they lead to misery,” he warned.
