Represented by the Director, Department of Education and Monitoring, Mr Abia Udofia, Owasanya called on the need for more sectors to aid the fight against corruption in the country and promised that it would discharge its responsibility of fighting corruption in government agencies and private institutions in Nigeria.
On his part, chairman of the Board of Trustees of APSUN, Barr Abdullahi Gurin, said it would continue with its public awareness programme to make youth understand the correct ways to continue to earn money through POS business and to make them aware of ways to protect themselves and their wealth from fraudsters and corrupt practices.
“This public awareness programme is not only limited to business owners but also ordinary citizens to avoid falling into the hands of fraudsters. That is our goal; to make the business clean so as to eliminate the corruption in it. Therefore, we are here to educate people including employees and non-employees to understand the purpose and benefits of this organisation that manages the POS business.”
