The Lagos State Governor. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, yesterday urged religious leaders and parents to instill moral values in youths.

The Governor who gave this advice on Victoria Island, Lagos at the 2021 Inter-Faith Parley organised by the Lagos State Ministry of Home Affairs.

The theme of the parley is: ‘’Achieving Greater Lagos: Role of Religious Bodies’’.

The governor who was represented by Deputy Governor Dr. Obafemi Hamzat, said that the family remained the nucleus of any society, hence, it should endeavour to instill morals in children.

Head of Service Hakeem Muri-Okunola said youths now walk about almost naked in the streets.

Muri-Okunola, represented by the Permanent Secretary, Public Service Office,  Samson Ajibade, said youths engaged in drug abuse, which was an issue that urgently needed to be curbed, for peace to reign.

Commenting on the EndSARS saga, Commissioner for Home Affairs  Anofiu Elegushi said that the bitter experience of the EndSARS protest queried the roles of parents and religious leaders in the society.

He also said the parley would address issues dealing with character formation and moulding, the need for moral uprightness and the fear of God.
