Jonathan stated this while speaking during an exclusive command performance by the Port-Harcourt Male Ensemble International tagged ‘Peace for All Nations’ at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Abuja.
He stated that Nigerian youths sometimes engaged in all kinds of confrontation, recalling his conversation with one of his friends.
Also, I was talking about with someone, one of my companions and I said look, in Nigeria, they seem not to try and have a public youth body. Since as a rule, the local youth bodies are more grounded than the public youth body.
Usually, the public youth body should be more grounded than the provincial youth body. In the event that you go to my state, Bayelsa state for instance, on the off chance that I am a public individual from the Nigerian Youth Council, the IYC, Ijaw Youth Council, feels that they are your chief.
On the off chance that you go toward the Southwest and toward the North, the Arewa Youth Group, they believe they are better than the public youth body.
In the event that you go toward the Southwest, something very similar. In the event that you go toward the Southeast, something very similar. That shows obviously that as a country, we are in a tough situation. The solidarity of the nation is faulty,” Jonathan stated.
