The Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Mr. Ibrahim Mustapha Magu has urged religious organisations to join in the fight against corruption.
He called on Christian and Muslim Clerics to teach their members in moral uprightness and integrity in churches and mosques.
“Every religion teaches the fear of God and abhors every behavioural digression that promotes moral decadence, impurity and all forms of vices including corruption”, Magu told 7th Triennial National Delegate Conference of the National Council of Muslim Youth Organisations in Ibadan.
His speech was delivered by Mr. Mohammed Rabo, the Head, Ibadan Zonal office of the Commission.
Magu quoting Prophet Muhammad in a famous Hadith said: “Whoever amongst you sees something wrong he should change it physically – using his hand, if he is not able to do so with his hand, he should change it orally – speaking out in condemnation against it. If that is still not possible, he should detest it in his mind; this constitutes the weakest level of faith”.
