ICPC Sensitizes PATNARKS and Brain Builder Schools in Osogbo

  • Urges Students to Shun Corruption

As part of its mandate in the campaign against corruption, the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC), Osun State office has sensitized students of Patnarks School and Brain Builders School in Osogbo, Osun State on the need for them to shun corruption and embrace positive values.

The sensitisation exercise was carried out recently by officers of the Public Enlightenment and Education Unit of Osun State Office in the premises of the schools.

Delivering a lecture during the events, Mr. Laaro Sulyman enlightened the students on the mandate of ICPC which includes enforcement, prevention, and public enlightenment and education as stipulated in the Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offenses Act, 2000.

He further said that ICPC believes in mobilising the youths in the campaign against corruption as they were the future of the nation, and therefore deemed it necessary to give them a platform to meet and interact on corruption issues. The platform is the Students Anti-Corruption Clubs which will be launched in the schools at a date to be agreed upon with the school authorities.

At the end of the lectures, ICPC publications were presented to the school management for further enlightenment.
