Campaigner For Good Governance, and Founder, Ubani Nigeria Solidarity Youth Movement, Comrade Emeka Anozie has advised young people in Nigeria to shun all forms of antisocial behaviour and criminality, as he enjoined them to work hard, and use their God given talent, for meaningful national development. Anozie gave the advice in an open letter titled, “Activism with youth of yester years and open letter to comrades”, in which he called on fellow activists, with whom he started the struggle for a better Nigeria, not to abandon the cause, considering the fact that the country still needs improvement in various aspects. Noting that youth unemployment and insecurity in the land, is currently leading to agitation for separation, Anozie said that corruption and insecurity is leading to increase in violent means for change. He said: “We still have a lot to do for a better Nigeria, so that more of our youths can be positively engaged to work or use their talent, to make a living, like people are doing in developed countries, where your talent could make you become billionaire. “We saw it in Michael Jackson and Bill Gate and others.
What about those in sports? It’s also very unacceptable that our moral standards are going down the drain because of poverty and copying of western culture, ours is suffering set back, even with our languages going into extinction.” Anozie decried the level of prostitution on the part of undergraduate Nigerian ladies. He said some are side chicks to some married men, and their parents know nothing about it, adding that all the parents know is that their children are in school. He noted that it is time Nigerians impress on the government, the need to implement social security now, as insecurity, in form of kidnapping, banditry, insurgency and terrorism keep increasing in the country. He noted that if the political class could do away with their jumbo pay, achieving social security for the poor and unemployed is possible in the country. While decrying situations, where some parents still fend for their graduate children who were yet to get jobs, Anozie noted that this contributes to insecurity, as he harped on the need for social security.
Further calling on comrade friends, Anozie said: “Well, I know some of us are still civilly engaged in continuous demand for responsive leadership and good governance. Some due to poverty and how our older political class, still in power are failing, have given up, to eke a living for themselves. “However, it is expedient we must leave good legacies for the youths to continue the struggle from there. And that is why I am writing now, to inspire the youth. And I have started with my first book ‘My activism as a youth’, to essentially mentor young people, about activism, and encourage them to embrace volunteerism, than involve in antisocial behaviour. “Another legacy is Ubani Nigeria
