The Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Mr. Ibrahim Magu, has come out to say that Nigerian youths are important to the success of anti-corruption since they are the future.

Ibrahim revealed this today during a nationwide walk against corruption organized by the EFCC in collaboration with the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC).

According to him, the programme would concentrate on how youths can support the commission in the fight against corruption in the country.

Similarly, Mr. Ayuba Wabba, President, Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) revealed that he is bothered about the high rate of corruption in the country because it is causing youths` unemployment.

According to him, if there were lots of jobs in the country, the young ones would not have to resort to corruption to feed.

He added that supporting EFCC and other anti-graft agencies is needed to end corruption once and for all.

His words, “Today, we stand in solidarity with our youths that have made themselves available to support the crusade and the fight against corruption.

“We are doing this in your own interest without which youths will not have a future in this country, if we don’t address the issue of corruption, youths will not have employment in this country with the level of corruption.

“So let`s continue to support the EFCC and other anti graft agencies to address this monster of corruption that have drawn Nigeria backward for some decades.”
