The Kano State office of the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) has admonished Nigerian students to imbibe virtues of integrity, honesty, punctuality and decency as future leaders that the country would be proud of.
The charge was given while establishing a Students Anti-Corruption Vanguard (SAV) at Jigawa State Polytechnic, Dutse, Jigawa State recently.
The representative of the Commission, Mr. Dalhatu Bangaje of the Public Enlightenment and Education Department of the Commission, stated that the aim of establishing SAVs in tertiary institutions was to minimize corruption in our schools as a corruption preventive strategy.
Mr. Bangaje who also inaugurated the first executive members of the SAV in the institution, urged them to lead by example and imbibe the spirit of teamwork so as to impact their school positively in the fight against corruption.
In his remarks, the Dean, Student Affairs of the Polytechnic, Adamu Baba Wada, commended ICPC for its efforts in educating and enlightening students all over the country through the laudable initiative of establishing Vanguards at various tertiary institutions in the country.
He emphasized that such clubs are an important means of contact and communication among the students, adding that the platform provided by ICPC would afford the members of SAV the requisite knowledge to play active roles in the prevention, education and enlightenment of the members of the institution in the fight against corruption.
