The Coordinator, Presidential Amnesty Programme and Special Adviser to the President on Niger Delta Affairs, Brig.-Gen. Paul Boroh, made a clarion call on Nigerian youths to shun violence, hate speeches, divisive comments and embrace peace and unity as future leaders of the Nigeria nation, the most populous black nation on earth for the overall rapid development of the country rather than trying to break the cord of unity.
This call was made in an interview with News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) by Brig.-Gen.

Brig.-Gen. Paul Boroh further quotes as follows, “Most of the crises in the country are perpetrated by the youths. Youths constitute the largest in the country.
“They play very important role in the progress of the country, and are mostly affected when there is crisis as they are brainwashed into carrying arms to perpetrate violence against their country to what end I don’t know,” he said.
It is a good thing for Nigerian youths to live in peace and unity within all regions in the country, the North, East, West and South with one another in order to promote law, order and tranquility atmosphere for the socio-political and economic rapid development of the Nigeria.
At the interviewed section, youths were urges to preach love, harmony, law and order, unity and peace to all their host community, friends and colleagues, urging them to focus on the collective socio-economic and political rapid progress, peace and unity of Nigeria.

Paul Boroh recommended agriculture as the easiest way to stay occupied and remain self-sufficient in Nigeria, soils are fertile and crops easily germinate and youths would reap bountiful harvest from agriculture-economic.
