Former Nigerian President, Goodluck Jonathan has advised youths of the Niger Delta to focus on much more important matters than on violence and chaos.
He made this known while receiving a visit from the executives of Movement for Survival of Izon Ethnic Nationality in the Niger Delta (MOSIEND).
He noted that the future of the country lies with the youths and they must be willing to take certain responsibilities to safeguard that future.
“The future belongs to the youths who are at the centre of most developmental endeavours and policies of government; so, the diversion of youthful energy towards violence is not desirable at all.
“The future of this country belongs to the young ones not for those of us who have given our youthful years and are at the verge of exiting the scene. The youths should resist every attempt to take to violence.
“Peace in the Niger Delta is very essential as any disturbance in the Niger Delta affects the country because the region supports the economy of the nation.”
