Worried by the increasing cases of corruption in the country, the Joint Task Force in the Niger Delta region, code-named Operation Pulo Shield, has invited a British training institute, Youth at Risk, to educate its men on transformation. It was gathered that the three-day training, which started on Friday in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, would help the operatives to reappraise their priorities.
The Deputy Commander JTF said the programme was designed to help the operatives re-examine themselves. He said, “If you are a corrupt person, the course will help you to see how corrupt you have been and give you an opportunity to move away from your old self and put on a new garb. “It is about integrity, contentment, avoiding temptation and doing things in a more transparent manner. It will help you to see the vanity in the things that you once considered business as usual,” he said.
In his remarks, the Flag Officer Commandant, Central Naval Command, Rear Admiral Johnson Olutoyin, said the aim of the invitation was to enhance the efficiency of the security operatives.
