New group emerges to tackle youth indiscipline
A non-governmental organization, the New Deal Organization (NDO) has advised that values and obligations needed to be inculcated in the Nigerian youth to have a disciplined country in the future.
Chairman of the organization, Daniel Kanu said this while addressing newsmen in Abuja. He said the program was aimed at bringing together parents and youths for a synergy to create common ground that will foster mutually beneficial relationship.
Kanu noted that in spite of the country endowments, it remained constrained by surmountable challenges central to which is the youth.
‘The history of Nigeria, within the course of 54 years has remained interwoven with unemployment, poverty, corruption and criminality to mention a few, and the consequential effects of these include moral decadence, loss of family values, downward spiral development, lack of trust in public office holders and a nation in coma,” he lamented.
Kanu further added that the program which consists of Parent Against Crime Together (PACT) and Youths Against Crime (YAC) is aimed at bringing back the days of good family moral, societal, communal, and ethical values.
