The executive governor of Anambra state, Prof C.C. Soludo, has said that mothers can play a vital role in ending this menace of Get-rich-quick syndrome, which has sent several of the youths to their earlier grave especially in recent times.
Prof Soludo these remarks during a Sunday Holy Mass at the governor’s lodge, urging mothers to rise to the occasion by inculcating the culture of sound moral upbringing and personal discipline in youngsters.
The governor emphasized that this year’s 2022 celebration of mother’s Sunday, is a time for sober reflection, especially with regards to parenting. He lamented a situation where the youth were now being deeply influenced by negative tendencies and a get-rich-quick attitude, which had ruined a lot of them.
In his words prof Soludo said;
“This get-rich-quick syndrome has resulted in senseless killings, drug abuse, mindless ritual killings, armed robbery and a host of other anti-social vices, which have bedeviled the society”
He appealed to mothers to continue to play the role of strong moral purity for the family, which the youth could emulate.
The governor also used the occasion to emphasize the need to put a stop to the Monday sit-at-home, which had taken an enormous toll on businesses and the economy of the state and the entire South-East.
