German Consul-General in Lagos, Mr. Ingo Herbert reiterated the importance of nurturing children’s innocence and creativity to build a corruption-free society. According to him "CYIAC initiative is about Nigeria and its future. Corruption creeps into a society when people accept it and fighting it has to start with the mindset that it is not acceptable. It is a good thing that Nigeria has demonstrated that corruption is not acceptable.” He said that the Geman Government will continue to support Creative Youth Initiative Against Corruption and Vision of the Child to promote creativity in Children and Youths.


According to the Project Director-Foluke Michael, the project was declared opened in Abuja on October 4, 2016 by the EFCC Chair, Mr. Ibrahim Magu, CYIaC is currently partnering with primary and secondary schools within Nigeria to identify talented children and youth with vision for a corruption- free Nigeria. Our aim is to inculcate in them, values that will make them grow into young responsible citizens. Their creativity will be showcased through various creative mediums; Painting, Drama, Writing, Reading, Singing, Information Technology and Inventions.”
