Following the insecurity that has plagued all parts of the country, the President of the Christian Association of Nigeria, Dr. Olasupo Ayokunle, has called on the government to provide infrastructure as a way to address the ills.
Ayokunle made this known at the investiture ceremony of Dr Micheal Abodunrin as the new Chancellor for Bowen University, Iwo, Osun State on Saturday.
Ayokunle lamented on the security situation in the country as the country marks 60 years of independence from colonial rule.
He pointed out that with the current situation, terrorists can easily recruit many jobless youths who can be used as a tool against the country.
He said, “You cannot just look at the security situation in isolation. Insecurity in the country is a by-product of bad governance.
“When development plans are not executed, you see graduates leaving school without any employment and an idle hand is what the devil can use.
“Anybody that can give them (graduates) pittance, they are ready to take it and work for them. So, terrorists find it very easy to recruit them because they induce them with money and all other things.
“Government should be at the forefront of prevention by making infrastructural facilities and welfare available to them.”
Speaking after his investiture, the new Chancellor of the university, Abodunrin, who replaced. Olumide Kehinde, who had completed his five years term, commended the management style of the outgoing Chancellor.
