UN Warns Nigerian Youths against Discrimination and Hate Crime in 2019

A United Nations consultant as of yesterday warned youths against engaging in discrimination and hate crime ahead of 2019 general elections. The UN consultant pleaded that rather than engage in discrimination and hate crimes, Nigerians especially the youths, should engage in political activities that can assist them in contributing their quota to the country’s development.

This warning was issued at the fourth Lagos Regional Secondary Schools Model United Nations, LARSSMUN, a conference organized by a UN consultant, Nigerian Model United Nations Society, NIGMUNS, in Ikeja.

Speaking on behalf of the UN consultant, Chairman, Nigerian Model United Nations Society, NIGMUNS, Chika Nwaozuzu, said: “Here at this conference, the delegates disagreed over issues but after several disagreements, they found a common ground that suits all. That is what we want from our public office holders. This will benefit Nigeria. Our diversity, if well managed and taught, can bring us certain advantages. It can improve productivity, creativity, and efficiency in our global societies as businesses. Organizations and communities can profit from the variety of skills, creativity, experience, and entrepreneurship that comes with a diverse mix of people living in the same location.

Earlier, Secretary General, 2018 LARSSMUN, Chisom Ude, who was represented by Damilola Solola, described discrimination and hate crimes as enemies of Nigeria’s common existence.
