He said: “We recognise that prevention and education are key to winning the fight against corruption, hence the regular engagements with various stakeholders, especially impressionable young minds.

“We have taken the campaign to schools – universities, secondary and primary schools, and churches.

“We will not relent in doing this, because Nigeria is for all of us and the young ones are our future leaders.

“We need to guide them properly so that we can have a better future.”
