Kamarudeen Ogundele, Ado Ekiti
The Nigerian Postal Service, Ekiti State Territory, has launched anti-corruption special stamps in support of the President Muhammadu Buhari’s fight against corruption.
The Area Postal Manager, Mrs. Ijeoma Akinwunmi, said the service took upon the campaign because it had the widest reach and link with the people, especially, in the rural communities.
Speaking at the customers forum in Ado Ekiti on Tuesday, she said NIPOST had designed stamps with various inscriptions including, “Say no to Theft,” “Say no to bunkering,” “Say no to fraud,” and “Say no to bribery.”
“Do not give bribe, do not take bribe. Anti-corruption is a fight we should all embrace and fight at our own level,” she said.
The State Secretary of the Association of Senior Civil Servants of Nigeria, Mr. Kingsley Bassey, urged parents to lead their lives by examples to their children.
He said, “If you inculcate the spirit of truth every time, you will not have to sit your children down to tell them tales by moonlight on how to be truthful. They will learn it naturally from you.”
A director in the state’s Ministry of Education, Dr. Ajisafe Tope, advised parents to educate their children and be honest.
“We should go out and do what is right and what is just. We can’t fight corruption in just one day. The change begins from me and you.”
A customer, Mr. Kingsley Ike, at the forum urged the government to work the talk in the fight against corruption.
He lamented the noise generated by the unverifiable claims by politicians that Senator Dino Melaye did not graduate from Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria.
He warned that making unverifiable moves could make a mess of the fight against corruption.
