|Nigeria News: Nigerian Youth Amb. To the US bags award by Daudupress(1): Mon 20, September, 2021|
Bags Africa Community Award
The Nigerian Youth Ambassador to the United Nations and Secretary-General, Nigerian Youth Congress, Dr. Raymond Edoh has added another glorious feather to his feathers as he on Friday bagged the Africa Youth Community award in Abuja.
The Africa Youth Community 2021 Young Africa Leaders Conference with the theme: “Keys to Achieving the Africa we want” held at the NAF centre in Abuja went informative and as well, educative as Dr. Raymond Edoh anchored a security class and the role of youths in the Nigerian politics as one of the panelists.
The proposed two minutes talk as directed by the anchor wouldn’t end until fifteen minutes, yet the audience wouldn’t be fed up with the expository.
The young eloquent Dr. Raymond Edoh while speaking on the Nigerian Youth’s involvement in politics urged Nigerian Youths to always forecast a good end while going through tunnel times especially in politics.
“When you are talking about the solution
you don’t talk about the problem. You use the problem as a strategy
in getting the solution. Now, this is the solution. The solution is involvement. If in your locality they only picked someone and said you are the winner of this election and this person is not the winner of the election neither is he or her wanted by the generality of the masses in that constituency in question,
then you should get involved more. How do you get involved? You organize your team and apply to INEC to observe an election. So if you have a youth organization in your constituency you can write to INEC for electoral supervision. I think with that we will be able to correct that”.
Reacting to a question directed to him on security, he said, “the major challenge we have today on security in Nigeria is arms. Abuses of arms, how did this happen? After I respond to this question we would be paying a visit to other Service Chiefs. We would make our minds clear on what we need from them. For instance, I wanna talk about the importation of arms in Nigeria and their roles. First and foremost if you are a business person who deals in arms, before you take the step of bringing in these arms, you need to get an end-user so when you have this end user which means its an approval from the government that ok, you can bring these arms in as a business person. On my engagement with the customs in Lagos, for instance, I have seen a couple of containers of 40 feet loaded with arms seized by Nigeria Customs Service which I inspected personally myself. They were seized because their corporate process haven’t been taken by these businessmen.
“So what these guys do is they bring in these arms illegally to Nigeria without the end user’s certificate which is wrong and these arms are being seized by the Nigeria customs service. So now what happens to our security agencies? I think we would be following up with the Service Chiefs on helping us to make sure that this never happens because if we have three 40 feet containers loaded with arms and these arms get to the wrong hands, there is no way all of us here will be in peace. So I think people are not really getting to the root problem of security in Nigeria and the root problem is to make sure that when these arms get in because when someone is hungry, you can’t work, there is no way a criminal can function without ammunition. You can’t function when you don’t have a gun but the gun gives you a high level of functionality. I think we will be going in around the Service Chiefs to put it to them”, he added.
Highlights of the event were the presentation of an award on Dr. Raymond Edoh for his community developmental strides around youths in Africa.
Reacting to the gesture, he congratulated the organizers assuring them of his continuous support.
” I dedicate this award to the African youths”, he said.
Speaking further, he donated fifty (50) bags of Rice to participants at the event in a bid to encourage both the youths for availing themselves of such programs and the organisers for putting together such an international program.
