The emir of Muri, HRH, Abbas Njidda Tafida has advised that youths across the 36 states of Nigeria engage in meaningful ventures like agriculture to earn a living. The emir stated this yesterday at his palace in Jalingo while addressing Muslim faithful in the state.
The royal father, who frowned at the sudden increase of restiveness and drug abuse among youths in the society, attributed same to loneliness that emanated as a result of unemployment.
He therefore charged every young man and woman to engage in meaningful agriculture with a view to being self-reliant.
The emir further condemned in totality, the incessant clash between farmers and herdsmen especially in the northern part of the country.
While calling on the people of the state to co-exist peacefully irrespective of political, religious or tribal background, the traditional ruler opined that peace remained the panacea for development.
“The discrimination of who is a Muslim and who is a Christian does not demonstrate the teachings of the two prophets we believe here on earth,” the emir said.
In an interview, the permanent secretary, Bureau for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs in Taraba State, Bello Yero, charged youths of the state to shun all forms of social vices.
Yero, who discouraged the alarming rate of thugs among youths, cautioned politicians to play their game according to the rules and stop empowering young ones with weapons to harm their opponents for continued peace in the society.
