‘We want to leverage on the teeming youths on the campuses of higher institutions in our sustained fight against computer-related frauds and we consider UNILAG as the starting point.

‘We believe that the university environment is a training ground for youths, both academically and morally. It is, therefore, imperative that we join hands in the fight against the infamous yahoo-yahoo.’

The VC declared readiness to collaborate with the EFCC and include the agency in UNILAG’s orientation programmes from next session.

For the returning students, we will do it on a faculty basis, so that the anti-graft campaign can be far-reaching.

‘Quite a number of the students join the bandwagon innocently, hey are gullible. As such, we will definitely partner with you and let you speak to the issues’, he assured.
