Not fewer than 500 youth Corps members currently serving in Bauchi state were on Friday mobilized to participate in a rally round Bauchi metropolis in the ‘Walk against corruption’ campaign.
While addressing the Corps members, State NYSC Coordinator, Bashir Shehu noted that already the anti-corruption crusade is one of the community development services carried out by the scheme adding that some members are being attached to EFCC for their community services.
“Youths can play a pivotal role in the anti-corruption campaigns because they are vibrant and will be leaders of tomorrow. They need to imbibe honesty, transparency, and probity so that they can be good future leaders”, he stressed.
Bashir Shehu added that ” There is no denying the fact that any country without good youth is a dead one because they are its hope and it looks up to them for advancement. So the corps members in partnership with the EFCC will preach to their fellow youth in the state to eschew corruption”.
The walk against corruption was organized by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in collaboration with the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) to launch a campaign against corruption in public, private organizations and among the citizens of Bauchi state.
