A youth group, 'Coalition of Nigeria Youth Leaders for Peace' has called on government to work out ways to promote peace in the country.
The group said in Abuja Monday, that they are campaigning for peaceful co-existence among different ethnic and religious groups in Nigeria.
The group's President, Mike Loyibo, said youths are tired of continuous attacks and killings in the country. "We need peace to flourish and grow as a nation. Therefore, we are calling for a genuine peace talk and more level of seriousness from the government and religious groups," he added.
The group also condemned the statement credited to former president Olusegun Obasanjo over his call for military action against the Boko Haram sect, adding that the same measure employed in dialoguing with the Niger-Delta militants should be employed in this case.
Loyibo said the coalition also wants the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission to probe the crisis between the Sokoto State Governor, Aliyu Wamakko and a Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN) staff.
They also demanded for the immediate sack of all non-performing ministers in this administration.
