No future for Nigerian youths until corruption is rejected – EFCC Boss | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f

The Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Mr. Ibrahim Magu has declared that not until Nigerians resolve to collectively abhor all forms of corruption, there will be no future for the youths.

The EFCC boss, who was speaking on Thursday when he visited the Naval Headquarters in Abuja on a courtesy call, stated that the economic recession currently facing the country was due to the fall out of the corrupt tendencies of leaders.

Expressing concerns over the misappropriation of federal, state and local government allocations, he said, “If 50 per cent of the allocations at the three tiers of governments are judiciously put to use, we would not be where we are in terms of underdevelopment and infrastructural decay”.

Magu explained that his visit to the Naval headquarters was in furtherance of the inter-agency collaboration between the EFCC and other government agencies.

“EFCC alone cannot fight corruption; we need all hands to be on deck. We have come to appreciate you for the robust relationship that exists between the EFCC and the Nigerian Navy, and we want to leverage on that to stem corruption in Nigeria,” Magu said.

He appealed to the Chief of Naval Staff, CNS, Vice Admiral Ibok-Ete Ekwe Ibas, to help mobilize women in uniform, especially in the Nigerian Navy, to come out on December 7, 2016, to be part of the flag off of the Women Against Corruption programme by the wife of the President, Aisha Buhari.

In his response, the CNS pointed out that “corruption fuels insecurity and responsible for lack of development. We just cannot afford to continue like that”. He however advised the EFCC chairman that more attention should also be paid to corruption in the private sector.

Ibas also said that after the flag off of the Women Against Corruption programme, “efforts should be made to look seriously in the direction of the children as there is the need to catch them young”.

“In whatever you are doing, be rest assured that we would be there to support you in kill corruption in Nigeria; because like the President said, if we don’t kill corruption, corruption will kill us,” he said.
