He also challenged the youths to always report any act of criminality within their communities or neighborhood in order to make Nigeria a safe place for all.
Salihu commended PATFON for its roles in mobilizing youths across the country for positive engagements and assured the group that the EFCC will remain unyielding in its efforts to curb corruption, money laundering and other forms of economic and financial crimes.
