It is important that we understand that no society thrive in the place of sour and agitative statements geared towards bitterness and endangering the life of our youth especially in Enugu state. The present administration has taken SME to another level in the state and many of our youth are empowered via this sector, urban and rural developments are not left out. Peace has been maintained within all axes across board in the state through dynamic leadership. This should be given more support and accolade so that the state can have more peaceful co-existence. It is also important to draw the attention of the youth on how the current tension and insecurity all over the nation has been brought under control by the pragmatic approach of his Excellency, Gov Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, through peaceful approach to issues. Therefore any youth, organisation or any person trying to lead any protest or match against the government is doing more harm than good to the state, and they must understand that the hoodlums may be waiting to hijack such a purported one million match. The Ohaneze Youth Council in Enugu State thereby call and counter any attempt of such match as security agencies shall be on alert against anyone who want to disturb the state and ignite more tension and sorrow. We therefore call on any one who feels their expectations are not met to embrace logical dialogue and consultation for effective result rather than declaring for one million match. We shall continue to ensure that government at all level embrace good governance in the best ethical practices. OYC Enugu state ably led by Comr. Ifeanyi Ogbodo thereby call on all the youth of Enugu State to embrace peace and peaceful dialogue so as to obtain our desired result.

Long live Ndi-Enugu

Long live Enugu State Government

Long live Ohanaeze Youth Council

Pope Declares Feb. 23 World Fasting, Praying Day





Pope Francis has invited Roman Catholics, all Christians and members of other religions to observe Feb. 23 as a day of prayer, fasting and initiatives for peace.

Francis while addressing tens of thousands of people in St. Peter’s Square for his weekly blessing,  on Sunday urged everyone to ‘say no’ to violence and conflict.

According to him, the appeal is  because of the “tragic prolonging” of conflicts around the world.

Feb. 23 is a Friday in the first full week of the Christian season of Lent, during which fasting from food and extra acts of charity are encouraged as a sign of penitence.

He said “everyone, in their own consciences, before God, should ask ‘what can I do for peace?’”

“Surely, we can pray but not only: each one of us can say ‘no’ to violence in their own way, because victories obtained through violence are false victories, while working for peace benefits all,” he said.

He specifically invited non-Catholics and non-Christians to join the initiative in any way they saw fit, “but all together”.

Francis said the prayers and fasting should be offered in a particular way for the people of the Democratic Republic of Congo and South Sudan.

South Sudan has been hit by a prolonged civil war and humanitarian crisis. The Democratic Republic of Congo has been hit by unrest this month following the shooting of protesting pro-democracy churchgoers opposed to President Joseph Kabila.
