The Executive Secretary of the Nigeria Christian Pilgrim Commission (NCPC), Rev. Yakubu Pam has said that corruption enriches individuals but destroys great nations.
Pam, who stated this when he received in audience the Executive Director of Citizens Awareness Against Corruption and Social Vices Initiative, Mr. Olumuyiwa Onlede, frowned at the situation whereby corrupt people enriched themselves with the money meant for our common wealth and divert it for personal benefits.
The NCPC boss decried a situation where leaders would loot the resources of their States only to leave behind massive debts for generation yet unborn.
Pam commended the organization for its efforts in creating awareness against Corruption, stressing that their efforts should be celebrated by all and sundry at a time when the young ones are being distracted by materialism and unhealthy ventures.
He called on the youth to wake up and contribute their quota to national development by using their talents to better their youthful life rather than indulging in criminality.
Pam informed them that the Commission’s stand on corruption cannot be compromised thus he would collaborate with their organisation and other NGOs that are also involve in fighting corruption.
He further said; “Let’s join hands together to see how we can partner. We will do our best to support you”.
Earlier, the Executive director of Citizens Awareness Against Corruption and Social Vices Initiative, Mr. Olumuyiwa Onlede congratulated Rev. Pam on his appointment and thanked President Muhammadu Buhari for finding him worthy of the appointment.
Onlede noted that corruption has been the bane of the nation’s development thus urged the NCPC boss to work the talk by ensuring that the fight against corruption which the present administration is hinged on is applied at the Commission.
Onlede affirmed that his organisation has no doubt that the NCPC boss would deliver on his mandate considering the fact that he is a tested performer.
