“I Have Two Children; If They Get Killed, Life Is Not Worth Living For Me” – Patience Jonathan

Nigeria’s First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan, Wednesday, decried the ongoing killings in Borno, saying the killing of students and other Nigerians was a dastardly act as the youths are the nation’s future hope.

“Today, I have two children. If they get killed, life is not worth living for me. Why will anyone therefore want to kill people’s children? No mother will like to suffer in vain.

The First Lady said this while receiving various youth leaders who visited the State House in Abuja as part of activities to prepare for the upcoming National Youth Peace Concert scheduled for Saturday, March 8 in Abuja.

“Our joy is in the youths. You are the hope of Nigeria, the hope of tomorrow. I don’t want to lose any of you,” she added.

“Please, be co-ordinated, and also be good ambassadors at the concert so that the foreigners can take good news back home about us”.

The youth leaders led by Mike Omeri, Director-General, National Orientation Agency (NOA), Onyeka Onwenu, Director-General, National Women Development Centre (NWDC) and Jude Imagwe, the Special Assistant to President Goodluck Jonathan on You th gand Student Affairs, were at the Villa to chart a course for the concert.

“I invited you here today for two reasons. One of them is to work with you to make Nigeria a better place for us to live in, and the other one is to ensure our states, local government areas, regions and zones are peaceful,” the First Lady said.

“No one can do it all, we need collective efforts to make Nigeria a better place to live in. Please, put the nation first, because no other country is better than ours.”

According to her, the concert would be a turnaround for youths as it would enlighten them on peaceful ways to co-habit with their neighbours and thereby shun violence.
