Represented by the Minister of State for Education, Prof An­thony Gozie Anwukah, the president restated the administration commitment to root-out all form of corrupt practices in the country in order to enthrone a brighter future for chil­dren.
He said, “In the last one year of this ad­ministration we make relentless efforts to kill corruption and vices associated with cor­ruption, such as bud­get padding, sorting, miracle centres, among others. I saw a future that is bright in the next generation if we can be­gin today.”
On his part, the Na­tional Coordinator of Youth Health and Social Reforms (YOHESOR), Dr. Ijeomah Arodi­ogbu, disclosed that not less than 4 million school children across the federation are to be inculcated with the right morals on anti-corruption through the Value Project pro­gramme in 2017.
