The House of Representatives Committee on Judiciary chairman, Onofiok Luke, has called on Nigerian youths to shun violence, warning that it can lead to anarchy and disunity.

Mr Luke made the call on Sunday in Abuja at a reception ceremony organised in his honour by Etinan Federal Constituency Forum (EFCF).

The lawmaker, representing Etinan, Nsit Ibom and Nsit Ubium of Akwa Ibom at the Federal House of Representatives, urged youths to cultivate the virtue of discipline and self-control.

“Let us shun violence, let us completely do away with it,” he advised.

According to him, it is parents’ responsibility to raise disciplined and responsible children to become great leaders in the future.

He urged parents to instil discipline and the fear of God in their children.

Mr Luke stressed that Nigerians should have a clear idea of where they came from to know where they were going to achieve their destiny in life.

The lawmaker noted that although life is not a bed of roses, with desire and the passion for achieving excellence, humans would surmount all obstacles.

He added that the call to duty was a call to serve with humility and a clear sense of purpose while disregarding all negativity and setbacks.

Idongesit Asanga, president of Etinan Federal Constituency Forum, Abuja, remarked that Mr Luke was honoured due to his track record of achievements, political sagacity and philanthropy.

Onofiok Ekong, chairman of the occasion, described the lawmaker as a potential national leader.

“No matter how powerful you are, unless you address national issues, you cannot solve Akwa Ibom problems,’’ Mr Ekong said.
