The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, yesterday flagged off the Nigerian Women Against Corruption, WAC, project, at the International Conference Center, Abuja.
The project is aimed at engaging women across the country in a nationwide sustainable fight against corruption.
According to the Acting Chairman of the EFCC, Ibrahim Magu,
“The choice of women is strategic, because we believe that they are torch-bearers in the anti-corruption crusade, and it is because of the important role they play in making the society a better place,” He further added that:
“The WAC project is aimed at galvanizing Nigerian women to buy into the corruption fight and also to raise the consciousness of the consequences of corruption in the minds of their households.
The project will further be taken to the grassroots through the states and local governments across the country.
