A University Don has advocated a sustainable framework aimed at bringing youths together to exploit their potential for economic development of the country.
Head, Department of Taxation, Nasarawa State University, Keffi, Professor Solomon Aza made the call at the Wangibi Annual Cultural Festival in Nasarawa Eggon Local Government Area of the state.
According to Professor Aza , the major way of entrenching peace, stability and steady economic growth was to initiate feasible programmes focusing on youths to give them the opportunity to show- case their talents.
Speaking on the theme “Unity and Peace for Development”, the university don explained that no nation can develop no matter the quantity of its natural resources if there is no Justice, equity and avenue for citizens to express their views and be heard.
Professor Solomon Aza called on youths to take responsibility and channel their energies to the development and unity of the country.
National President, Eggon Cultural Development Association, ECDA, Mr Wilberforce Alaku stressed the need for leaders to always fulfill their campaign promises to enhance peace and development.
