He said, “the rate at which Nigerians, especially the youth, are committing suicide in the country is so worrisome, and it is unknown to the African tradition.

“I, therefore, want to appeal to Nigerians, especially the youth, to desist from taking their own lives regardless of the conditions they find themselves.

“The poverty level in the country may be a major factor which leads to such an act. However, we are confident that the government is doing everything possible to ensure our better future.”
