With due respect, on behalf of Toro Uplift, we write to draw your attention and to register some words of advice on the fight against corruption in Nigeria.
Since your assumption of office as the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission boss, tremendous successes had been recorded in the fight against corruption especially at the federal and states levels.

On this, Toro Uplift implores you to explore new strategies at the grassroots to improve the corruption fight in the country.
The EFCC should target education institutions in its fight against corruption. This is because school is the second agent of socialisation that children learn the do’s and don’ts of the society.
As such, EFCC should liaise with the federal and states ministries of education as well as the local governments’ education authorities to mount an anti-corruption campaign in primary, secondary and tertiary institutions.
Student Union Government and other students associations should be monitored well as most of the nation’s politicians today were student representatives at their various alma mater.
With regard to primary and secondary schools, special classes should be established at every primary and secondary school nationwide to teach the negative effects of corruption on the society.
Doing so would provide them with proper orientation of the term ‘corruption’ and its negative consequences to our populace.
But for now, EFCC has a long way to go in dealing with corruption in Nigeria.
Presently, the corruption fight in Nigeria is limited to few offices both in the government and private sectors.
We want to assure you that Toro Uplift, our association is ever ready to give all assistance required of it in the fight against corruption in Nigeria for the betterment of all.
