EFCC, NYSC Strengthen Relationship to Fight Corruption in Kwara

Date: 2023-05-26

The Zonal Commander, Ilorin Zonal Command of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Michael Nzekwe has stressed the need to harness the multiple potentials of Nigerian youths for national development and increase the fight against corruption.

He made this call on Wednesday, May 24, 2023 while playing host to the Kwara State Coordinator, National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, Mr. Chris Olawale Jimba, who was on a courtesy visit to the EFCC’s Office in Ilorin.

Nzekwe identified the NYSC as a critical stakeholder, which collaboration was key to winning the fight against corruption.

According to him, “the youths are at the centre of the development of every nation, while the NYSC scheme has been the leading agency of youth development since its inception.

The Zonal Commander congratulated the NYSC for its golden jubilee celebration urging it to continue to build on what it had already achieved, especially in ensuring zero tolerance for corruption in all its schemes.

While lamenting the rising tide of internet fraud among the youths, Nzekwe urged the Kwara NYSC Coordinator to support the EFCC with information that could assist the agency in fishing out the bad eggs among corps members with a view to bring them to justice and make a better future for the Nigerian youths.

“Support us with information and in any areas that you can, to tackle corruption. By doing so, you are contributing in no small measure to the building of a great nation. The fight against corruption requires collaborative efforts. When you see something; say something and EFCC will do something”, he said.

Earlier, the Kwara State Coordinator of the NYSC, Mr. Jimba had assured EFCC of boosting the existing relationship between the two agencies.

He told Zonal Commander that Nigerians appreciate the efforts of the Commission and its crusade against corrupt practices in the country. He noted that “the future of this country lies in the hands of some agencies of government, especially the EFCC”.

He assured that his agency would always give support to the EFCC in sensitizing Nigerians on the dangers of corruption with a view to reduce corrupt practices to the barest minimum.

Mr. Jimba, who was posted to Kwara as the 22nd NYSC Coordinator in the State in February 2023 said that, his visit was to familiarize and strengthen the existing collaboration between the two agencies. He praised the EFCC for always participating in NYSC engagements promised to strengthen the EFCC/NYSC CDS Group as part of measures to boost the anti-corruption campaign.

The Kwara NYSC Coordinator was accompanied on the visit by Mr. Balogun Ahmed, Assistant Director, Corps Welfare and Health Services; Mrs. Akinola Olubunmi, Assistant Director, Community Development Services; Mrs. Babatunde Funmilayo, Assistant Director, Planning, Research and Statistics and Mr. Morakinyo Oladipo, Assistant Director, Public Relations.
