Hundreds of  youths on Friday participated in a prayer programme for national unity and the quick recovery of President Muhammadu Buhari, Punch reports.

Various clerics took part in the prayers which commenced on Thursday evening and ended on Friday afternoon at the Eagle Square, Abuja.

He called on the government to pay special attention to the youths by creating the right environment for them to express themselves creatively.

He said, “Today, Nigeria our fatherland is faced with a situation where our maximum efforts are yelding minimum results. The youth have been abused,  misused and left despondent.

“Yet, rather than resort to violence, they have chosen the path of peace. The youth is the hope of this country and as such deserve special attention. Our leaders must not live their today and tomorrow that rightly belonged to the youth.”

Also speaking, the Chairman, Forum of State Chairmen, National Youth Council of Nigeria, Amb. Sara-Igbe Sukubo said religious harmony is practicable in a multi-religious country like Nigeria.

He  noted that the situation in the country called for the youth to stand for national unity and equally seek divine intervention.

“By this prayer programme, we  redefined the uniqueness of our diverse ethnicity as a fulcrum for national unity and strength,” Sukubo stated.

The Founder of Belema Foundation, Jack-Rich Tein, identified the challenges in the country to include the non-engagement of youths in nation building and misuse of available resources.
