Bishop Onuoha advises youth: “Don’t Be Swayed By Politicians.”

Bishop Sunday Onuoha, head of Vision Africa, has warned young people to be aware of politicians who may wish to exploit them to further their political ambitions in 2023.

Ounoha addressed a symposium on inclusive youth discussion that Vision Africa, ADF International, and the Global Peace Foundation together organized in Abuja to warn young people about the risks of election violence.

 

The young people were exhorted by him to participate in nonviolent actions that would lead to peaceful elections.

 

The bishop emphasized that since they make up a larger portion of the voting population, he reminded them of their important role in the election process.

 

He emphasized that teenagers should be examples of excellent character and behavior since they have the power to choose who wins any political office.

 

 

The Bishop pleaded with them to refrain from becoming “cheaply accessible” for exploitation by desperate politicians who are plainly looking for what they would gain.

 

Instead of using violence, he counseled the teenagers to use the option of discussion to address any problems, difficulties, or concerns they may have with any procedure or form of government.

 

“Dialogue remains a vital element in addressing conflicts,” Onuoha remarked. I firmly encourage you to embrace conversation and consultations, as well as to build concepts that will ensure peace, national unity, and economic growth.

 

Major General Saleh Maina (rtd), a former general officer in charge of the 3 Division at Rukuba Cantonment in Jos, Plateau State, challenged young people to take advantage of the various empowerment initiatives set up by the federal government rather than partaking in vices that are detrimental to the country’s development.

 

Rev. Father Canice Enyiaka, the Regional Representative for the Global Peace Foundation, agreed that adolescents should learn from history, especially how industrialized countries used the creativity of their young people to change their socioeconomic systems.

 

However, he urged the youngsters to speak up for peace, equality, and fairness in the next elections using their numerical advantage, which was supported by INEC data.

 

Sukubo Sara-Igbe Sukubo, the President of the National Youth Council of Nigeria (NYCN), Belusochukwu Enwere, the National Chairman of the Youth Wing of CAN (YOWICAN), and Malam Sani Suleman, the National President of the National Council of Muslim Youth Organizations (NACOMYO), all praised the Global Peace Foundation for bringing together young people from all over the nation to inform and enlighten them on the importance of world peace in
