International Youth Day: Group urges FG To Reposition Youths
Blessing Bature-Akpakpan, Abuja
As the world celebrate 2021 International Youth Day, Project Rescue Nigeria Foundation has called called on the Federal Government of Nigeria to Reposition the youths in order to understand and appreciate the fact that they are leaders of tomorrow and know the better way to move the country forward.
The Convener and National Coordinator, Mr Irem Nnaemeka made the call in his address of welcome an event to Mark the Day on Thursday in Abuja.
Nnaemeka stressed that there was need to include support mechanism that ensure youth continue to amplify efforts collectively and individually to restore the planet and protect life.
He added, " the topic for the 2021 International youth day ” youth, politics, peace and security ” was germane considering the fact that Nigeria is facing the worse of insecurity scenario in her chequered history as regional and ethnic secessionist and irredentists rare their heads in violent clamour for self determination.
He maintained that there’s need for renaissance and reawakening of the flames of patriotism in our youths and the blaze of love for one another, adding that instead of being antagonistic, we should be organized, articulated to build a durable pact that will hold the leaders accountable and most importantly be politically involved in all strata of democratic governance to build the Nigeria that will all dream of.
Also speaking Amb. Obuesi Philip, the National Director of Community Agenda for Peace said that youths are important stakeholders in the national development and if Nigeria must grow youth must be actively involved not just as supporters but as actors in the Nigerian project.
We must refuse to be used by corrupt politicians to perpetuate evil or for their selfish gain, we must channel our energy on positve engagements, contribute to economic development, involve in the political space and rescue Nigeria from this nightmare that we found ourselves to where we will all be proud of.
