Don’t allow Nigeria plunge into anarchy over elections’ outcome – NOA urges youths

National  Orientation  Agency (NOA) in Anambra State has advised Nigerian  Youths to avoid the repeat of events of 1967 in the country and toe the path of peace, justice, and unity as sine-qua-non for overall development of the country. 

Director, Sir Joseph Uchendu gave the advice during an advocacy visit to Traditional  Ruler of Nnewi, Igwe Dr. Kenneth Orizu in his palace. 

He said allowing the nation to degenerate  into anarchy over events of the February 25 and March 11  general elections would spell doom both for all citizens and economic activities.

He said, “We’re here on dual purposes, one  to inform the revered Traditional Ruler, Igwe Oraizu on his new post as the  Anambra State  Director  of NOA and to  seek for  his  royal  blessings.

“Secondly to brief  him on the on going  programme of the Agency nationwide hinged on Peace  Building and Stabilization Advocacy to some selected Traditional  Rulers in the three senatorial districts  of the  State.”

NOA boss further enjoined people of the state to shun violence at all cost, warning that  Nigerian Government at all levels  would not want the recent  on going  crises in Sudan replicate itself in Nigeria whose citizens are peace loving. 

Responding, Igwe Orizu described the  Peace Building Program of the Federal Government as apt, especially now the  country is passing through lots of challenges. 

He assured that Nnewi Community as the  economic hob of the State would not be found wanting in promoting any Federal  Government  programme geared towards  hoisting lasting peace in the State and  Nigeria at large 

While promising to take the messages to every quarter of the community, the 98-year old monarch called for repeat of the visit to enable the NOA team address Presidents-General of the four quarters of Nnewi as well as Nzukora Nnewi, highest policy making organ of the town.
