The acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, has charged Nigerian youth not to join the bandwagon of those seeking to ‘blow’ – the modern slang that depicts desperation for quick wealth, Pmnews reports.
“At the individual level, every youth must shun all temptation to be corrupt or be corrupted by any means. They must realise that the only way to success is hard work.
The fast way only leads to destruction. GROW, don’t BLOW! An attempt to sacrifice steady growth on the alter of a ‘blowing success’ is an invitation to self-destruct,” he noted.
Instead, he urged them to follow their dream through to success and always stay away from criminal acts in order not to fall into the raging hand of the law.
He said joining the ‘blow’ gang could push youths into committing crimes which may in turn cut short their dreams.
