EFCC launches school clubs to equip youth

14 June 2014, 13:54

Abuja - The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has launched integrity clubs in some police secondary schools in the South-South Zone of the country to help raise morally upright youth.

Speaking at the launch, the head of the enlightenment and re-orientation unit, Aisha Larai Musa, who represented the commission chairman, called on local youths to imbibe integrity as a way of life.

According to him, the clubs are designed to inculcate the values of integrity and transparency in the impressionable students to enable them grown up to be responsible citizens and change agents for Nigeria.

He said economic and financial crimes could be best prevented if individuals imbibed early in life, strong moral values of integrity, honesty, accountability, transparency, fairness, equity and trust.

According to Musa, the launch of the clubs represented the commission’s shift from the traditional law enforcement to crime prevention through education and citizens’ engagement.  

“The EFCC Secondary Schools Integrity Clubs, therefore, are intentional, joint proactive efforts by schools and the Commission to instill in our young ones important core ethical values of honesty, fairness, responsibility and respect for self, others and citizenship,” he said.

He also disclosed that, the inauguration of the club at the Police Comprehensive Secondary School, Port Harcourt, brings to 151, the number of Integrity Clubs already established by the Commission across the nation.

Musa said apart from the Police Comprehensive Secondary School, similar clubs were also launched at the Police Secondary Schools in Akpabuyo, Calabar, Cross Rivers State and Ukana, Akwa Ibom State.
