The chairman delivered the order during a courtesy visit to the Commission’s corporate offices in Abuja by the executives of the Committee of Youth Mobilization and Sensitization (CYMS), led by Chief Obinna Nwaka, according to a statement released by the EFCC spokesman, Dele Oyewale, on Friday.

Olukoyede acknowledged that some young people have intelligence and competence, but he advised them to use their gifts for meaningful work rather than online scams.

Therefore, he reminded the public and pertinent stakeholders of the commission’s commitment to save the youth from derailment while also urging them to work together to stop the nation’s cybercrime epidemic.

“We must not allow our youths to derail,” he declared. Over time, we have let it and witnessed the devastation. Some of our young people are intelligent and talented.

“All that has to be done is educate them on how to use their abilities for worthwhile endeavors. Cybercrime is out of business.

Olukoyede repeatedly emphasized the value of the EFCC in Nigeria and expressed concern about what would happen to the nation if the agency were to cease operations for a month. He also expressed sadness for the dehumanizing treatment that Nigerians abroad had to endure as a result of the negative perception that certain people had of the nation.

“Let everyone understand that this is not a fight for ourselves,” he urged. It is for the country as a whole, and it is for the kids. Just consider the consequences if the EFCC is inactive for a month.
