Share This

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has enlisted the support of women across the country in the fight against corruption, describing their role as strategic to winning the anti-corruption war.

The Ilorin Zonal Head of the EFCC, Oseni Kazeem, made the call on Tuesday, March 16, 2021, while speaking as a Guest Speaker at an event organised by International Women Communication Centre, IWCC, Ilorin, in commemoration of the year 2021 International Women's Day in Ilorin, the Kwara State Capital.

Oseni, who spoke through the Head, Public Affairs Department of the Zone, Ayodele Babatunde on "The Role of Women in The Fight Against Corruption", said that the Commission believe that women are in vantage position as mothers and wives to change the destiny of our nation as one blighted by deep-rooted corruption by waging a determined and sustained war against corruption in Nigeria.

“I am of the view that the fight against corruption will receive considerable boost, if women rise up and say No to corruption in any form. I strongly believe that, for corruption to be totally eradicated in Nigeria, women need to actively get involved and make sure they play active role as mothers in moulding our youths”, Oseni said.

The guest speaker who used the occasion to extoll the virtues of women, urged them to use their natural instincts to care and nurture their children who in turn would exhibit sound values that would bring the country out of the doldrums.

“The role of women in the fight against corruption cannot be over-emphasized. Women are resourceful and hardworking. They are agents of change and nation builders. It is often said that, ‘what a man can do, a woman can do better.’ When it comes to transparency and accountability, let us give it to women. In business, women are known to be far more prudent and honest than men. Women are more careful drivers than men. In leadership positions, women are known to be stickler for rules. They are principled, patient, caring, understanding, calm, enduring, effective and transparent”, he said.
