Group takes corruption awareness to school
As part of efforts to tackle corruption in Nigeria, a group, Crime Network News (CN News), has taken its campaign to schools, to strengthen and enlighten students on how to confront corruption.
The event, tagged, ‘Awareness of crime and corruption,’ held at the Divine Steps Private School in Orile, Lagos, was targeted at students between the ages of 16 and 19.
Speaking on the project, CNN chief executive, Prosper Obi, said: “If Nigeria is to become united again, we have to stand up and say ‘no’ to corruption.
Obi added: “We created this platform to educate youths before it is too late. We need to change, strengthen and rejuvenate the mind of our leaders of tomorrow, which are mostly students, and that is why we made them our first target.”
First City Monument Bank boosted the project by awarding scholarships to students that participated in the debate sections and music recitation.
