From Jimoh Ahmed, Ikare-Akoko
Youths inordinate crave for wealth by questionable means in Nigeria is a dangerous trend that may consume the country if effort is not made to control it.
The Chief Imam of Arigidi Akoko, in Akoko Northwest Local Government Area of Ondo State, Sheik Jimoh Balogun stated this in an interview with The Hope .
Balogun said it was worrisome that children between the ages of 12 and 17 years now got themselves in money rituals and other heinous crimes.
The cleric blamed the society for worshipping money and giving undue honours to the rich with doubtful source of wealth.
He also blamed parents for not monitoring their children.
He therefore urged government not to fold her arms and allow unemployment of school leavers degenerated to lawlessness and criminality.
Sheik Jimoh Balogun condemned in strong term the ongoing fuel scarcity, stressing that it has added to the hardship of Nigerians.
He appealed to president Muhammad Buhari to take proactive measures to solve the problem while those who brought the country to this mess must be unpunished.
