A group, Aviary Association Worldwide, has called on parents to revive the norms and value system in the training of their children.
The group said the incessant cult clashes were due to lack of peaceful orientation from home.
This form part of the group’s communiqué, while marking the 2023 International Peace Day held at the NUJ secretariat, Iwe Iroyin, Abeokuta.
The vice president of the group, Adebayo Oniyide, noted that once Nigerians internalise the virtue of patience, cultivating peace will be simple.
He also called on governments to provide job opportunities for the youth, adding that it will prevent them from engaging in all sorts of social vices.
“You see, we have to be very patient with ourselves. If you have a little patience for government, at the same time, you will be able to maintain peace with yourself, with your neighbours, and with your family and there will be no crisis.”
“What I can say is as global vice president, I’ve said earlier that the first thing is to shun vices. I would only employ the government to work towards how the youth can be engaged.
“Most times, it may not necessarily be employment, but employment is part of it,” he said.
Meanwhile, the Ogun state president of Gateway AVIARY, Abiodun Abiodu, expressed concern over the negative reports on cultism clashes that led to the killing of scores in Sagamu area of the state.
“It is a sad period to add that Ogun state is objective in the news for the bad things in the recent times. It is heart-wrenching, but what I can say is that most of our youth and to some extent, parents are living on the past glory that we are basking on the inferiority of the past,” he added.
