Independence: Nigeria @60 Is A Mile Stone- Delta NYCN Boss, Comrade Kenneth Okorie.



ASABA-DELTA STATE CAPITAL-Nigerians have every reason to celebrate the diamond jubilee of the nation because the country is still united
despite obvious daunting challenges.

The Delta State chairman, National Youth Council of Nigeria NYCN Comrade Kenneth Okorie in his Independence Day message urged Nigerians to redouble their patriotism for the country.

Comrade Okorie said at 60 the nation is grappling with corruption, poor power supply,bad network of roads,inflation, insecurity,inconsistency in policy formulation and implementation ,tribalism,religious crisis,political oppression,insurgency and high level of unemployment and under employment.

He said the celebration should be a time for government at all levels,past leaders,all regions, political class, technocrats,stakeholders and opinion moulders to come to a round table to brainstorm and come out with enduring measures on how Nigeria could meet the expectations of the nation's founding fathers.

He advised President Muhammadu Buhari to stop the blame game as expressed in his speech on failures of past administrations but should strive to make the nation great as promised in his electioneering campaigns in 2015 and 2019.

He said Nigeria at 60 is like a man with 36 wives and 774 grandchildren with competing needs which was a big challenge and advocated that restructuring was paramount to avoid making progress in error.

Comrade Okorie said the infrastructural deficit in oil bearing areas should be looked into to avoid hostilities in the creeks of the Niger Delta region where the bulk of the nation's wealth is generated from.

He equally reminded federal and state governments of the need to address the growing problem of youth unemployment as the issue was a time bomb that can snowball into crisis that would drag the nation backward.

The youth leader sued for fervent prayers from religious leaders and called on Nigerians to join hands in making the nation great among commity of nations.
