The fight against corruption in our society must be won, albeit with the collaboration of all and sundry.

In recognition of the above assertion, thel National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) have partnered to implement a presidential directive to raise public awareness on the menace of corruption through a road walk tagged “Nigerian Youths Walk Against Corruption” which held simultaneously in all 36 states and the FCT.

Bearing banners and placards with messages and inscriptions on the war against corruption, corps members in Jalingo metropolis on Friday 14th Feb, 2020 were joined by members of labour unions and civil society groups on the road walk which began at the NYSC secretariat and ended at the  Civil Service Secretariat where the procession was received by the Taraba state head of service, Mrs Suzy Nathan.

Addressing the procession, Mrs Nathan lauded the corps members who participated in the road walk and urged them to shun corruption and other related vices in the overall interest of the country. While commending the collaborative initiative between the various organizations represented, she reiterated that all hands must be on deck before any appreciable success can be recorded in the war on corruption.

Other organizations which took part in the road walk include Trade Union Congress (TUC), Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), National Council of Women Societies (NCWS), National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), among others.

The highlight of the event was a group photograph with the head of service, corps members and other participants.
