He enjoined all hands to be on deck in the fight against corruption, noting that it is not a war that should be left only in the hands of the statutory bodies set up by the government to fight the malaise.

The NYSC boss revealed that the collaboration between NYSC and ICPC which started in 2002 gave birth to the ICPC Anti-Corruption Vanguard, which has offered Corps Members the veritable platform to sensitize the public on the dangers of corruption which is a cankerworm that arrests development.

General Ibrahim urged the newly inaugurated members of the NYSC ACTU to discharge their duties with fairness and high level of integrity, in compliance with the ICPC standards, so as to justify the confidence reposed in them by Management.
