Federal Capital Territory, FCT, coordinator of the United Nigeria Chaplaincy, UNC, Chaplain Obadiah Abimiku Doka has called on government at all levels to create an avenue to build morality among youths in the country.
Doka, who made the call at the weekend in Gwagwalada during the commissioning and passing out parade of the FCT UNC cadets, also urged parents to bring up their children in a proper way for a better society.
He said that if the change Nigerians had been clamouring for must be achieved, the issue of morality, especially among the youths, must be taken seriously.
According to him, “Moral decay in our land has done harm than good. Parents in the country must come together to teach their little ones love, peace and how to behave in the society at the youthful age and when they grow with it, they will never depart from it.
“That is why we have already discussed to go to secondary schools to introduce security club. The club will help those children in the secondary schools and even in the tertiary institutions to know the value of life and when have understood that, they will begin to value other people’s lives,” he said.
Commissioning the 48 cadets, the International Commandant General of Chaplains, Prof. Jidejisos Josiah Ejie charged the cadets not to intimidate anybody while discharging their duties and responsibility.
Ejie, who was represented at the commissioning ceremony by the regional commandant, North B, Chaplain Ezekiel Joshua, said that the UNC was a religious para-military organisation with primary responsibility of resolving disputes through dialogue, keeping peace, building positive mental attitude in Nigerians, instill discipline amongst citizens of Nigeria among others.
