Youth Engagement: ICPC Plays Host to UNIBEN Students' Union Excos

Further to its firm resolve to partner with the youths in its anti-corruption crusade, the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) played host recently to executive members of the University of Benin Students’ Union Government.

The students who paid a courtesy call on the ICPC Chairman, Mr. Ekpo Nta, in Abuja were led by the speaker of the Union, Rt. Hon. Aigbogun A. Lawrel.

Explaining the purpose of the visit, the Speaker said that it was borne out of the high regard the Students’ Union had for the Commission as an anti-graft agency.

Hon. Lawrel maintained that the visit would enable his members gain more insight into the on-going war against corruption and learn more about the Commission’s operations and activities.

In his response, ICPC Chairman, Mr. Ekpo Nta, commended the initiative taken by the students to keep themselves abreast with the happenings in the world of anti-corruption.

Mr. Nta charged them to contribute their quota to the fight by shunning all forms of corruption: including cultism, examination malpractice and other vices that are common with the youths.

He finally challenged them to carry over strong moral principles into their different professional fields, as leaders of tomorrow while emphasizing that their success would mean success for Nigeria.
