Inter-tribal crisis, ultimatums caused by lost cultural values ― Group

The threat and counter threats issued across tribal divides in the country was at the weekend described as a fallout of lost cultural values and a lack of people-led approaches towards sustainable development.

And to solve this challenge, a nongovernmental organisation, Rescue Citizens Ambassadors has advocated and promised it’s commitment to creating a model and advanced people-led approaches towards sustainable development, social equity, domestic governance and economic viability.

The group said it will achieve this by utilising innovative research, policy and advocacy, an equitable and fair society in which families and homes can enjoy full social, economic and religious rights.

“We can’t just fold our arms and wish things away. Our belief in RCA is that once our cultural values are restored, it would make it easier to prepare the new crops of leaders not just to be gainfully employed but to be adequately equipped to pilot the affairs of the country in a positive trend,” RCA stated.

The zonal coordinator of RCA, Paul Omokehinde, made this known at the weekend while speaking with journalists at the NUJ Press Centre in Ibadan, reiterating that the group has a vision to create a platform for young people to actively engaged in social, economic, financial, industrial, religious and family activities within all tiers of the country.

He explained that RCA is a movement to birth a new Nigeria where there is justice and equity and where sons and daughters of nobody can become somebody without knowing anybody, adding that the club is open to like-minded and passionate people who are sincerely interested in reengineering and reinstating the core values of the people.

According to him, the focus of RCA is peaceful coexistence and synergy among the tribes and the group will teach youths to pursue and recover Nigeria’s lost values and influence them to shun bigotry and ethnic divisions to give all Nigerians a sense of belonging as well as unified tribes with shared vision.
