The acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, has called on Nigerian parents to see themselves as change agents who can help the nation overcome the varied challenges that corruption has placed in its path to development.

Magu also urged parents to have a rethink about their priorities, saying that the quest for wealth and inordinate pursuits of ostentatious living have made it impossible for them to inculcate the right values in their children.

He gave the charge on Saturday, May 11, 2019 in Lagos in a paper titled, “Family As An Effective Agent In The Fight Against Corruption, Economic and Financial Crimes” at the fourth edition of the International Day of Families organised by Entertainment Bus-Stop Limited.

Magu, who was represented by Ayo Oyewole, Head, Public Affairs, EFCC Lagos Office, described the family as a critical stakeholder in the nation-building, adding that, “Family is one of the primary agents of socialization. Family members teach the child the norms, values, morals, beliefs and ideals of the society. In the family, the child first learns what is good and bad and what is right and wrong. It is from the family that a child develops specific habits, traits of character, attitudes and values.”

He, however, lamented that some parents had failed in their responsibilities, considering the extent of the moral decadence in today’s Nigeria.

Making references to religious teachings against corrupt practices, he noted that parents owe their children the obligation of putting them on the right paths, so that they will be good ambassadors of the country.


He said: “Families are expected to monitor the associations their children keep. Evil communication, they say, corrupts good manners. .

"They should question what they read and what they do to ensure the purity of their minds. .

"The various indicators of the failure of the family and our society are apparent with the spate of criminality among the youth. .

Don not get stuck at the well of argument. Let God be your vindicator. Let Him fight your battles. He will vindicate you better than you can vindicate yourself.
