The Independent Corrupt Practices Commission (ICPC), has called on youths across the country to shun corruption and make integrity their watch word.

Mrs Azuka Ogugua, staff of the commission`s Education Department, made the call when she received students of Government Secondary School, Kubwa, on Tuesday in Abuja.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), reports that the students, members of the school’s Anti Corruption Club were on Excursion Visit to the commission.

Ogugua stressed that if corruption was shunned and integrity imbibed by all, the society would be a better place for all to leave in.

According to her, integrity brings about peace and harmony, good governance, self assurance, high esteem and high productivity.

Ogugua also charged youths to imbibe honesty, decency, diligence, reliability, national values and good neighbourliness.

She called on youths across the country to join anti-corruption clubs in their schools, adding that they should help to fight the menace so that it does not destroy their future.

Mr Geoffrey Anumve, Head of the commission`s Education Department who received the students on behalf of its Chairman, said the commission was poised to taking the corruption crusade to schools.

This, he said, was to ensure that students distasted corruption from their youth.

``I believe that if you start hating corruption now that you are young, you will grow up to become better citizens and good leaders.

``You have to fight corruption so that it will not destroy your future’’, he said.

Mrs Stella Nwokorie, Matron of the ICPC Club in the school who led the students on the excursion, said the visit was to expose them to the commission`s operations.

NAN reports that the students were taken through the commission`s mandates, causes and types of corruption and how to avoid them
