A group known as International Association of World Peace has declared that for society to be able to curb crime, young people must lead the fight.

Addressing journalists in Awka, Anambra State, the group said crime has refused to reduce because the desired approach has not been adopted.

According to the coordinator of the group, Mr. Henry Ebuluofor, the tool for subduing crime was “to form consciences and educate the young generation to goodness by holding the integral and fraternal humanism.”

While expressing optimism for a better future for Nigeria, Ebuluofor said: “Nigeria will someday become a nation where all citizens will strive to overcome our differences, with religious and ethnic differences de-emphasised, active citizenship and initiative encouraged, assistance for the poor and the marginalised provided, as well as opportunities increased for diverse social groups to participate in building partnerships and facilitate dialogue, peace and unity.”

He hailed the Church for its steadfastness in proclaiming and promoting universal morality.

The group further listed evils in modern society to include, anarchy and conflicts, injustice, violence and killings, as well as dispossession and destitution.

It maintained that government and citizens of Nigeria should have the mindset that fosters peace, love and harmony, and be proactive to contribute to the resolution of conflicts and common challenges in a just and peaceful manner.

“This is achievable only by resolving to put peace first by promoting platforms for dialogues and community values,” the group stated.

On his part, the traditional ruler of Nanka in Orumba North Local Government Area of the state, Igwe Godwin Ezeilo, called on the Nigerian elite to be more proactive and committed in building lives and developing humanity.

Earlier in an address, the association’s President, Ambassador Per Stafsen, said that it kicked off its first grassroots mobilisation for peace development in Akwa Ibom.

He reeled out the objectives of the organisation to include, support for world peace and development, mobilisation of communities in development initiatives, and promotion of relief and development initiatives among others goals.
