The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), and the National Youth Service Scheme (NYSC), have agreed to use February 14, 2020, to engage and sensitize the youths of Nigeria in all the states of the country about the evils of corrupt practices.
Both agencies will, during the Valentine’s Day, engage the youths of Nigeria in the fight against corruption.
The Director of Public Affairs (EFCC), Mr. Osita Nwajah, who represented the Acting Executive Chairman, Magu at a meeting with NYSC Management, said the youths were the centre-piece of any social development adding that it was important that every single development policy and law involve the youths.
