Lagos—As the anti-corruption war intensifies, National Legal Adviser of All Progressives Congress, APC, Dr. Muiz Banire, has demanded the Federal Government takes the anti-graft war to schools.
Banire made the appeal weekend, at a special Iftar, the breaking of fasting with the children of Bab-Es-Salam Orphanage home, Ikeja, which also had in attendance, Hajiya Sekinah Lawal, Chairperson of National Association of Women Journalists,NAWOJ, Lagos chapter.
APC legal Adviser noted that though the students have no power to participate in the ongoing anti-graft war, but they will understand the need to protect public property including funds when the opportunity arise rather than misappropriation.
On how to understand this, he explained that teaching of Islamic and Christian religious studies in schools should be intensified.
His words, “It will help bring back our morals and values which we have lost over the years. Each student will be taught how to abide by the tenets of his religion. In the process, they will inculcate good values propagated by the religions into their lifestyle.”
Lamenting how moral values has eroded the society, Banire Said “It is pathetic that someone who had been convicted of corruption is been celebrated in our country today. But in the past, when someone is tainted with corruption, the person could commit suicide.
“It is not like that again because everyone now believe in the arrival syndrome; that is, he has made money. No one investigate the source of the wealth,” he added.
