''Grow, don’t ‘Blow’, EFCC boss Ibrahim Magu admonishes Nigerian Youth

 

The Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu has admonished Nigerian youths to desist from joining the band wagon in a quest to “blow”.

According to the EFCC Boss, he described the modern slang as a symbol of desperation for quick wealth while affirming that such mental state could push them into commiting crimes which may in turn cut short their dreams.

This warning and admonishing words were issued at the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife on Friday, November 8th while delivering the keynote address at the 2019 Symposium of the National Association of Philosophy Students (NAPS), OAU branch.

Ibrahim Magu who was duly represented by the Zonal Head of the Commission’s Ibadan Zonal Office, Friday Ebelo advised students to take their studies seriously and always look inwards to discover and nuture their talents to maturity.

“At the individual level, every youth must shun all temptation to be corrupt or be corrupted by any means. They must realise that the only way to success is hard work. The fast way only leads to destruction. GROW, don’t BLOW! An attempt to sacrifice steady growth on the alter of a ‘blowing success’ is an invitation to self-destruct,” he said

While lamenting the disturbing trend in the involvement of the Nigerian youth in internet-related crimes, Magu challenged them to re-direct their energy into positive activities that will benefit them and the Nigerian nation.

He said the EFCC is doing its best to ensure that the exceptional talents of the Nigerian youths are properly harnessed and put into appropriate use in the nation building efforts.
