The state of corruption in Nigeria is so dire, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission is attempting to remedy the problem by “catching them young” and as such, has introduced the Clean Hands Against Corruption Initiative aimed at children and the youth.

The programme is an anti-corruption awareness campaign initiative aimed at ensuring that children and youth abhor corruption, economic and financial crimes in their totality and commit to live with clean hands.

The Launch of Clean Hands Against Corruption programme is scheduled to hold on Thursday, May 26, 2016 at the Eagle Square, Abuja by 9am.

Members of the Public, especially the Civil Society community have been specially invited to the programme which will take off at the Wuse II Head Office of the EFCC at 8:30am with a ‘walk against corruption‘ to Eagle Square.

Many civil groups and affiliated individuals have pledged their support for the programme. Individual such as human rights activist and Bring Back Our Girls supporter, Aisha Yesufu.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission is determined to carry out the Buhari Administration’s resolve to wipe out corruption from the Nigerian society. As such this initiative is laudable in reaching the formidable youth force in the country to ensure that the current fight against corruption does not see a resurgence in the future when it is hoped that the present young will take over.
