A Warri-based popular cleric, Pastor Simeon Obiobo Andafa of Shammah Divine Zion Ministry International, has disclosed that Niger Delta region has been significantly insufficient in the investment in youths.
Andafa who is also a businessman and entrepreneur made this known while speaking with GbaramatuVoice recently.
He explained that the little resources received from the interventionist agencies should be invested mostly on the youth’s education.
“For Decades, the Niger Delta has been significantly insufficient in their investment in youths. The little resources we receive from the Intervention Agencies should be invested mostly on education.
“I believe this will be exonerating for the region in the future, as these young ones will be well informed and positioned to better utilize the untapped opportunities in Niger Delta and bring the light of attention from all over the world.”
The clergy said the younger generation is not habiting the culture of patience, noting that there is so much hurry to become and ignoring the process.
“I am worried because the younger generation is not habiting the culture of patience. There is so much hurry to become and ignore the process it takes.
“However, my prayer daily is that these younger ones will be able to catch the vision well and take the baton from us with more knowledge to be able to do it better than the way we did and become globally relevant as youths from the C&S as well as the Niger Delta.
The cleric, however, called on political leaders to lead with the fear of God: “The word of God says, “the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom” and we must know the truth because it is the way to our freedom.
“I admonished that our political leaders should lead with the fear of God by having the people they govern most, especially the youths who are the leaders of tomorrow.” he added.
