EFCC Boss Olukoyede Urges Nigerian Students to Avoid Forgery


The Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ola Olukoyede, has urged Nigerian students to avoid engaging in forgery and other corrupt practices.

Mr. Olukoyede delivered this advice during the inauguration of an Integrity Club at Arewa Schools, located in Wuse Zone 4, Abuja, on Wednesday, according to a statement from the anti-graft agency.

“Diversion of funds, embezzlement, stealing, forgery, bribery and others are examples of corrupt practices. Should we allow such practices in our country? Can the nation move forward if we allow such practices in our midst?,” Mr Olukoyede said, urging students to eschew them.

Mr. Olukoyede, represented by Nwanyinma Okeanu, the commission’s Deputy Director of the Public Affairs Department, highlighted forgery, internet fraud, embezzlement, theft, and bribery as corrupt practices that have “over the years hindered the progress and development of the country.”

The anti-graft agency’s campaign against forgery and other corrupt practices comes amid ongoing controversies surrounding Mr. Tinubu’s Chicago State University certificate.

Although the Supreme Court dismissed new evidence related to Mr. Tinubu’s certificate forgery scandal, affirming his electoral victory, the issue continues to provoke reactions from Nigerians.
