The acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, has challenged corps members to always think like leaders, saying such mindset would prepare them better for the leadership assignments ahead of them.

 

Magu gave the charge on Tuesday, at the orientation camp centre of the National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, Oyo State Directorate, in Iseyin.

 

The EFCC boss’ message was delivered by Friday Ebelo, zonal head of the Commission’s Ibadan office, during the orientation programme organised for the 2019 Batch ‘C’ (Stream 1) corps members.

 

According to him, the level of education attained by the corps members must reflect in their thinking and conduct as it is expected to help them impact their environment positively.
“Nigeria places high premium on you. You cannot afford to let it down. A true leader will always do things that will lift up the society and refrain from getting involved in act that will pull it down,” he said.

The anti-graft czar also advised them to have a clear vision about their future and explore all legitimate means to ensure that their goals are achieved.

Grow, don’t ‘blow’, EFCC boss, Magu admonishes Youth

Published

Friday Ebelo,

The acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Mr. Ibrahim Magu, has charged Nigerian youths to patiently follow their dream through to success and always stay away from criminal acts in order not to fall into the raging hand of the law.

 

Magu gave the charge at the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife on Friday, while delivering the keynote address at the 2019 Symposium of the National Association of Philosophy Students (NAPS), OAU branch.

 

The EFCC boss, who was represented by the Zonal Head of the Commission’s Ibadan zonal office, Friday Ebelo, admonished the students to take their studies seriously and always look inwards to discover and nurture their talents to maturity. He added that with diligence and persistence success was sure for them.

 

He cautioned them against joining the band wagon of the quest to ‘blow’ – the modern slang that depicts desperation for quick wealth, insisting that such mental state could push them into committing crimes which may in turn cut short their dreams.

 

“At the individual level, every youth must shun all temptation to be corrupt or be corrupted by any means. They must realise that the only way to success is hard work. The fast way only leads to destruction. GROW, don’t BLOW! An attempt to sacrifice steady growth on the alter of a ‘blowing success’ is an invitation to self-destruct,” he noted.

While lamenting the disturbing trend in the involvement of the Nigerian youths in internet-related crimes, Magu challenged them to re-direct their energy into positive activities that will benefit them and the Nigerian nation.

 

He said the EFCC is doing its best to ensure that the exceptional talents of the Nigerian youths are properly harnessed and put into appropriate use in the nation building efforts.

 

The EFCC team was earlier welcomed to the institution by the Vice Chancellor of the university, Prof. Eyitope Ogunbodede.

 

The professor of medicine lauded the efforts of the anti-graft agency in ridding the Nigerian society of economic and financial crimes.

 

He hunted that the university would at a latter date organise the students in a larger scale to provide an avenue through which the commission would better and more effectively deliver its anti-corruption message to members of the OAU community.
