According to Akoh, when change occurs, it takes a lot of time, planning and reformation to be able to stabilise and implement its blueprint. The PCN commandant made the statement in Abuja on Saturday, October 28, at a youth empowerment seminar organised TIMEPAYS Nigeria Integrated Services.
Akoh who expressed optimism that the president would deliver on his promises, however, urged the youths to believe in the government of the day. His words: “Every reform or social change is initially accompanied with hardships, and that is exactly what the country is passing through today.
“I believe, with the support of well-meaning Nigerians, especially the youths, we shall surely get out of the situation.
“The greatest challenge we are having in this country today, which is not only applicable to the leadership, any new idea, invention or initiative, people will read different meanings to it. Perhaps, it is because of our
long suffering Akoh who was the guest speaker at the function, opined that, “No matter how laudable a project is, expect that people would politicise it and attach different meanings to it.”
Akoh said, Nigeria was embarking on a “radical departure from the ugly trend in the past where wealth
was developing wings and flying in the streets. Now, people have to work hard to make money.” This development, according to Akoh, was a healthy one for Nigerians and the government, stressing that, President Buhari would
eventually give the youth reasons to believe in themselves and the country.
On the recently passed bill for an act to establish Nigerian Peace Corps, the commandant expressed optimism that the president would sign the Bill, even as he said it had not been formally presented to the president for assent. But he said that he believes that Mr president assent the bill. Akoh appeals to Nigerian youths to exercise patient with Buhari
