President Muhammadu Buhari has been advised to as a matter of urgency address the marginalisation of youths in the country in order to preserve the future of Nigeria.
He has also been asked to implement the N5, 000 unemployed allowance for the youths as earlier promised.
The Prelate of the Methodist Church of Nigeria, Dr Samuel Uche who made this known at the dedication of a branch of the Church in Afaha II in Esit Eket Local Government Area built by the Abia family yesterday.
Uche, who expressed worry over the growing unemployment rate in the country, also attributed the increase in agitation by different sectional groups in the country to deprivation by successive governments in the country.
“Deprivation is the root cause of sectional agitation by MASSOB and other groups and this is the kind of change we want Buhari and this government to bring to bear on the country,” he said.
The Prelate also described politicians in the country, irrespective of party affiliations, as deceitful as according to him “they are like chameleons that change colour at any moment.”
Uche who blamed elders in the country for most of the woes befalling the country and youths in particular, however, called on Christians in the country to be fervent in prayer for Nigeria.
The Governor of the state, Mr Udom Emmanuel in a remark, commended the Abia family for taking God first, adding that his administration’s success has come from the support of the Church.
Emmanuel, who was represented by his deputy, Chief Moses Ekpo maintained that the state government would not relent in i9ts quest to “put food on the tables of Akwa Ibom people.
