The Chief Judge of Kogi State, Justice Josiah Majebi, has tasked leaders in Nigeria to be advocates for peace and security.
Majebi made this known when he received traditional, community and religious leaders at his residence in Ageva, Okene, on Thursday.
He explained that issues of peace and security are interwoven and must not be toyed with by leaders if the economic improvement of followers are paramount.
The Chief Judge while noting that his wish was for Nigeria to overcome its problem of insecurity, intractable unemployment, and many more, posited that leaders must constantly dwell on the benefit of ensuring peace to their followers.
According to Majebi, the value of a peaceful environment translates to development enjoyable by the youth who are the workforce of the society.
He said the leaders should continue to place emphasis on proper upbringing of children to have a productive and peaceful environment devoid of criminality.
