Mr Mike Sowe, National Coordinator, NAVC represented Abubakar at the occasion.

The acting chairman urged corps members to mobilise and educate the citizens on corruption and its ills, for the social well being of individuals and the society at large.

The ICPC boss assured the volunteers that necessary materials and training would be provided by the commission to acquaint them with the relevant issues.
