A SOCIO-political organisation, Forward Nigeria Group, FGN, has called on governments at all levels to involve the youth in governance as a means of resolving insurgency and militancy in the country. The group stressed that engaging the youth in policy making would guarantee them a sense of belonging and they would be willing to protect rather than destroy the country through violence. A statement issued in Abuja on Saturday quoted the group’s National Coordinator, Mr Alex Ebi- Edim, as saying that FNG envisioned a nation where all people, even in the most remote areas of the country, would hold the power to create opportunity for themselves and others. The statement said that the Secretary-General of the group, Mr Kim Danja, at the just concluded stakeholders’ meeting in Abuja, observed that youth empowerment was a veritable tool in resolving insecurity globally. He expressed the belief in engaging the youth in government activities to stop youth restiveness occasioned by neglect, poverty and unemployment. The group also announced the appointments of some of its key officials. “The zonal coordinators are Chief Uzoma Kantoma; South- East, Mrs Kikelomo Elewere; South-West, Alhaji Abdul Adamu-Fage; North-West, Mr Jimmy Ineke; North-Central and Mr Emmanuel Dangana; FCT while Hafsatu Yusuf is National Woman Leader,’’ the statement said. The group, therefore, called on the North-East and South- South zones to submit their nominations for the positions before the next meeting. NAN
