Nigeria: Youths Group to Build Toilets for Church

The Catholic Youth Organization of Nigeria (CYON), All Saints' Parish Dutsen in Bwari council, are constructing an ultra modern toilet for the church.

President of the organisation, Mr. Kennedy Onyegbado, said the youth took up the project in order to match up with the new church's building.

He expressed worries over unemployment challenges facing youths in the church and said the association will soon commence an empowerment programme to empower two youths yearly.

Reaction, the church's Parish Priest, Rev. Fr. Daniel Msugh Agber, commended the youths for the good work as well as projects in the parish and urged them to fast-track work on the toilet project.

"I was glad when the plan to erect an ultra modern toilet for the church was unveiled a couple of months ago and it is indeed what the church needs at this moment as we are building a "Basilica" because it befits the structure. I therefore urged you all to ensure that the project is finished in a short while," he said.

One of the youth's Patrons, Sir A.A Ekuma, urged the youths to shun all social vices and be good ambassadors of the church and the society at large.
