Lawson advises Nigerian youths to shun cultism

The National Coordinator of Rebuild Nigeria Initiative (RNI), Chief Hope Rex Lawson has advised Nigerian youths to shun cultism and embrace peace in order to secure their future, reports ITRealms.

Lawson gave this advice, weekend, in an address to a youth gathering in Calabar, argued that cultism and other acts of violence are short cuts to destruction, even as he tasked them to be good ambassadors of their families.

“The menace of cultism is such that every young person must avoid. Cultism and other forms of violent activities are short cuts to destruction. I wonder why it is difficult for the young people to understand this. Government must also introduce programmes that will enable the repented cultists get rehabilitated,” Lawson said.

On the violent activities of Fulani herdsmen across the country, Lawson described it as unacceptable, the unprovoked attacks on innocent Nigerians and charged law enforcement agencies to rise to the challenge.

“The primary function of government is the protection of lives and property. It is unacceptable that any group, under whatever guise will wake up any day and begin to slaughter innocent people. Government must rise to the challenge before the situation gets out of hands. We need peace in this country and nobody, no matter the tribe or how highly placed has the right to take the law into their hands. Security agencies must increase their intelligence gathering capacity and ensure that all such evil attacks are nipped on the bud,” Lawson said.

He, however, urged the government to implement policies that will enhance the socio-economic wellbeing of the people, while charging the youths to be creative in order to survive the present economic reality.
