The Executive Secretary of the Nigeria Christian Pilgrim Commission (NCPC), Rev. Yakubu Pam, has charged young people to build a nation and sustain peaceful coexistence.
Yakubu Pam said that Nigerians were not born to be slaves and that they must show more interest in governance.
NAN notes that he spoke at the annual Wusal Berom Fellowship in Abuja on Sunday.
The NCPC chief urged young people to take Nigeria as their home and drive it forward.
“We are born not to be slaves. We are children of God. We must participate in the building of our country. We have to build relationship with one another, irrespective of our ethnic affiliations”, he stressed.
Pam said the young and the old had made mistakes which manifested through the End SARS protests.
The cleric added that now is the time to sit and seek a common path for the development of democracy.
”I am proud of Nigerian youths. They have shown their level of determination. All they need to do now is to channel their energy towards the betterment of our nation,” he said.
