The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has advised President Muhammadu Buhari not to pay deaf ears to the agitations of the youths for better governance and all round development of the country.
President of the association, Samson Ayokunle, spoke on Saturday during the consecration ceremony of Rev. James Owoyemi as President of the United Apostolic Church of Christ worldwide in Akure, Ondo State.
He urged the government to create an enabling environment for the youths on the country to thrive.
Ayokunle, who called on the government to make concrete plans for the youths through developmental programmes, urged the youths to exercise a little patience because Rome was not built in a day.
He said, “I want the government not to trivialise the voice of the youth but to ensure and work assiduously and make concrete plans for them in the developmental programme of the country especially in creating an enabling environment for employment for the youths.
“With the way they have spoken, I also want to advise the youths to be patient because Rome was not built in a day. They also need to allow the government to have space to rejig things and make plans for them.”
