Cleric urges FG to give priority to youth development

The National President, Apostolic Church of Nigeria, Pastor Sampson Igwe, has appealed to the Federal and State Governments to prioritise the development of youths in the country.

Igwe, who made the call at the news conference in Abuja on Saturday, said the development and creation of employment for the youths would help reduce the level of insecurity  in the country.

According to him, a society without active youths participation will go into extinction.

“Most of this  insecurity, we are experiencing  today is because of unemployment.

“Many people and organisations, including the church, see the youths as threat.

“Many of our young people, who came out from the University today have no work to do.

“And the wisdom they should have put into work, will be channeled  into planning evil, crime like how to rob a bank and kidnapping of people,’’ Igwe said.

He also called on other leaders at all levels to give the youths a chance and provide them with opportunities for their development.
