Hey there, middle schoolers! Did you know that there are better options than corruption and crimes? Well, the chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ola Olukoyede, wants you to know just that!
Olukoyede believes that young people like you should use your creative energy for good. Instead of getting involved in corrupt activities, he encourages you to focus on positive self-improvement and entrepreneurial endeavors.
Recently, Olukoyede spoke to NYSC Corps members in Rivers State. He couldn’t be there in person, so he sent Ogar Sunday, the acting Head of Public Affairs Department of the Port Harcourt zonal command, to deliver his message.
The EFCC chairman emphasized the importance of maintaining your integrity. He urged young people to stay away from any actions that would compromise their values and principles.
Olukoyede believes that young people have the power to make a difference. He wants you to start looking within yourselves and come up with ideas and perspectives that can contribute to the growth of the economy. By taking on the challenge of fighting corruption, you can help create a better future.
Remember, there are positive alternatives to corruption. Olukoyede mentions that in other locations like Kaduna, Makurdi, Uyo, Keffi, Ilorin, Maiduguri, and Benin City, young people need to be aware of these alternatives. Positive self-drive, commitment to enterprise and entrepreneurship, creativity, and development-focused thinking are all great alternatives to corruption.
So, middle schoolers, let’s choose the path of integrity and make a positive impact on our society!
