Leader of the Association, Comrade Levi Okuru, conveyed NANS’ satisfaction with the EFCC, for its tireless efforts in the fight against economic and financial crimes, most importantly, cybercrimes, and called for collaboration with the Commission in combating the crime among students.
“We came here today because we feel this Commission is working for the good of the nation. So, having a partnership with a Commission like this will guide us to be good future leaders. As such, NANS in the zone is looking forward to proposing a campus-to-campus anti-cybercrime sensitization tour and this will cut across the zone. The zone comprises all the states in South-South and their Universities”, he said.
Okuru also commended the EFCC for growing the national economy by fighting every threat to its development. “One of our problems is the economy, so, if you see an agency that is ready to fight those that are slacking our economy, we should be able to appreciate it ”, he said.
While receiving the NANS delegation on behalf of the Commission, the Port Harcourt’s Zonal Commander, Assistant Commander of the EFCC, ACE Nwanneka Nwokike commended the student leaders for the visit.
“I thank you for coming here today most especially, the leadership of NANS in the South-South Zone, I am happy that we are having some young people who can boldly come forward for this kind of visit”.
