An Abuja based lawyer, Prince David Adeyeye has called on leaders to promote more community development policies that will affect youth positively and create more infrastructures for locals.
Prince Adeyeye in a statement yesterday said most youth who indulge in violence and exhibit uncultured habits in the society can actually be better people if they have access to fine libraries, sport centres and other basic amenities in their communities.
“In our communities, you will never find libraries or sports centres.
How then do we blame our youth when they watch Big brother Naija programmes, indulge in violence,” he noted.
He noted that communities within the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) can be made more habitable with the adoption of what he called, ‘Legislative Agenda for Community Development’.
Adeyeye said the onus lies on representative of communities at the National Assembly to ignite fundamental development adding that many law makers had not pressured the Executive arm of government enough to effect more changes across communities.
He said, “The community is the bedrock of any society or people, so you should have communities that would give us fine architects, sportsmen, lawyers, student, journalists and doctors.
“If you look into our communities, we do not even have that quality of life, no good schools, no waste management systems, recreational centres among others, should all that be left to the Executive arm? Adeyeye queried.
The young legal practitioner who is seeking for the AMAC/Bwari Federal Constituency (FCT) seat at the House of Representative, said youth and kids in London, New York or Dubai are not better than Nigerians, but that they are exposed to better environment and amenities.
