Clergy man ask youths to shun violence

ABUJA – The Parish Pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Abundant Life, Lugbe, FCT, Mr Sunday Ayorinde, has advised youths against allowing themselves to be used to cause mayhem in the country.

He made the appeal while speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja at the RCCG youth conference tagged “Youth of Relevance’’.

According to him, the youths in the country should engage in meaningful ventures and not be influenced wrongly by desperate politicians.

“The youths should rather join hands with the authorities to put an end to terrorism in the country; the youths should dedicate themselves to God’s service.

“They should contribute their own quota to the development of the church and also to the society at large,’’ Ayorinde urged.


He said that the youths should seek God in the days of their youths, saying a lot of them are easily influenced by peer pressure.

Ayorinde said the purpose of the programme was to bring the youths together to empower them spiritually, physically and financially.

He advised youths who were mostly used to foment violence and uprisings to denounce violence.

One of the guest speakers, Miss Julie Bialonwu, who spoke on computerisation appreciation, also enjoined youths to update their knowledge on computer usage and move with the trends.

She advised youths to stop using their personal laptops, Black Berry phones or other communication devices for wrong purposes.

One of youths at conference, Miss Cassandi Laura, said she had benefited from the lecture on online business. (NAN)
