By Anthony Maliki, Abuja
The Executive Secretary, Nigerian Christian Pilgrims Commission, (NCPC), Rev. Dr. Yakubu Pam has described Nigerian youths as nationalists.
Pam said this Tuesday while playing host to a group of politically-minded youths under the umbrella body of “Talk Tinubu Campaign Organization” (TTCO).
This was contained in a statement by
SA Media/Public Affairs to the Executive Secretary, Pam Ayuba.
Pam said the youths have a lot to offer to the stability and progress of the nation only if they’re giving the chance to prove their mettle.
“Nigeria can not survive as a nation without giving the youths their proper place. They have a lot to offer. I see them as nationalists”, Pam said.
On the economy, Rev. Pam noted though the rate of unemployment is bitting, the step taken by the present government no doubt has the potency and potential of turning around the country urging Nigerians, especially the youths, to have faith in the ability and capability of the present government under President Bola Tinubu.
He said the vision of President Tinubu in redirecting the affairs of the country are pointers that all hope was not lost in view of the prevailing economic challenges.
He noted the vastness of Nigeria and said we need to think Nigeria at all times and praised the policy so far enunciated by this government which will eventually see to poverty reduction and change the value orientation and psyche of the populace urging for patience and understanding on the part of stakeholders and religious leaders.
Earlier, leader of the TTCO, Comrade Victor Udor, had told their host they were in his office to identify with him and to also appreciate his leadership role in the Commission.
He said the creative leadership style of the NCPC ES has stood him out as a practical Christian leader of repute noting his presence in the government will help immensely in stabilizing the leadership of the nation.
He said the Executive Secretary has not only shown transparency in his conduct but has continued to live a practical Christian life, a virtue he called on other leaders to emulate.
According to the TTCO leader, with the likes of Rev Yakubu Pam in government, they are sure their voices will be heard in issues of governance. He urged the ES not to relent in pursuing ideal goals that will impact on the people and he should carry this advocacy to churches and other places so that the masses will be made aware of happenings in the government.
Comrade Victor praised President Tinubu for subsidy removal and called for sustained efforts in that direction. He later presented on behalf of the Talk Tinubu Campaign Organization a certificate of recognition and a vote of confidence on his leadership style.
