“National Youths Council of Nigeria, NYCN, Ekiti State chapter is here today on a solidarity visit to show support for the EFCC and congratulate the Chairman on his well-deserved appointment. We are youths and we want to support and partner with the EFCC in spreading the anti-corruption message to the youth population, especially on cybercrime.

 He further stated that “some of the youths today have involved themselves in cybercrime; that is why we are here today to partner with the EFCC in taking this message to the youths’ doorstep and the grassroots for deeper dissemination and in turn rid the youthful population of the desire to engage in cybercrime”, he said.

Oluwasegun solicited the involvement of the EFCC in youths’ anti-corruption activities as a way of appreciation

and support, promising the Council’s contribution to ending the menace of cybercrime among youths in the country.

Responding, the Executive Chairman of the commission, who was represented by the Acting Director, Public Affairs Department, Commander of the EFCC, Wilson Uwujaren said it was a good thing that youths were beginning to see the good works of the EFCC in riding the country of cybercrime and agreeing to key into the fight.

“The work of the EFCC cannot be done alone, every patriotic Nigerian needs to join and support the EFCC in this fight. Please spread the message to the grassroots so that everyone can contribute his or her quota in sanitizing the nation. Nigeria has resources but poverty is still prevailing because of corruption; so all should identify with the EFCC to cleanse the society,” he said
