Vice-Presidential Candidate of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in February 23 election, Peter Obi, has called on government at all levels to take issues concerning the youth seriously.

He said this on Wednesday at his home town, Agulu, Anambra State, during an interactive session with stakeholders and the youth of the town.

During the meeting, Obi said that beyond the call on government to take care of the youth, wealthy individuals at even town level should show concern about the progress of the youth in their various towns.

The former Governor of Anambra State said he was prepared to strengthen the loan scheme among women and purchase of buses for the youth, especially now he had observed that most youths are wasting away in the villages.

“If the government and wealthy people do not show interest in the progress of the society, it will breed anarchy in future,” he warned.

Traditional ruler of Agulu, Igwe Innocent Obodoakor, said he shed emotional tears when Obi called him and requested the meeting for the issues regarding the youths of the town to be discussed.

President General of the town, Andy Orakwue, said he was the most fortunate leader to have a good and noble man as Obi in his town.
