OWERRI—Nigerians have been reminded that the war against corruption, drug abuse, kidnapping, armed robbery, cultism and all social vices,  should not be left to government alone.

The Chairman, Integrity Club of Nigeria, Mr. Kennedy Nwagwu, who made the position of his Club known at press briefing in Owerri, also said that the Club had already developed an action plan to assist government fight these crime and criminals in Nigeria.

“It is the guiding principle of our Club that no nation can meaningfully develop in the face of palpable criminal activities. Government cannot do the fight alone and this is why we have resolved to assist government fight crime and criminals”, Nwagwu said.

Adding that most Nigerian youths have seemingly derailed from acceptable societal norms, the Club Chairman promised to organise rallies, seminars and workshops with the aim of inculcating healthy living habits into the youths.

On job creation, Nwagwu said his Club would encourage its members to establish business concerns that would absorb the unemployed youths.

“The Club is very positive that any gainfully employed youth will not have time to go into any criminal act or associate with people of questionable character. Again, it should be understood that government cannot create these needed jobs alone”, Nwagwu said.
