The EFCC’s boss who appreciated the commitment, passion, originality and creativity of operators and stakeholders in the industry, enjoined them to work with the Commission in areas beneficial to the country. “The relationship can be established, the relationship is welcome, and we have a full- fledged Department of Public Affairs headed by a Director. We can develop, we can work together and we can give you stories. We can also give you our own modus operandi which you can use to portray us in a good light, because Nigeria is the only country that we have. You can make or mar the reputation of the country by the way you are depicting it, not only the EFCC but also Nigerians as a whole”.
Executive Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Abdulrasheed Bawa, has called on youths across the country to put the internet to more productive uses rather than employing it to commit crimes.
He stated this on Thursday, August 4, 2022 at the National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, Orientation Camp, Issele Uku, Delta State. According to him, the ample prospects of the internet should be explored by youths to achieve more beneficial results for society.
"The internet does not necessarily have to be an avenue to impersonate, manipulate or fabricate lies to defraud others. Let the youths begin to use the internet for socially desirable things like offering solutions to the needs of industries, homes, government and other engagement of life”, he said.
