Amaraizu was speaking in commemoration of the 2019 UN International Youth Day celebration.
He said that POCACOV, which is an initiative of the  Inspector General of Police, Mr Mohammed Adamu, was aimed at saving Nigerian youths from the claws of cultism and other vices.
In his words “The IGP, through the campaign, wants all youths to live a meaningful live and to contribute their quota towards nation-building,’’ he said.

The national coordinator also urged youths to be law-abiding and shun negative tendencies as well as violence in order to make the society secure.

According to him, youths as leaders of tomorrow should strive at all times to contribute their quota to national development.

He urged the youth to take advantage of their numbers  in contributing to the growth and development of the country.
“Youths must shun negative tendencies such as cultism and other vices as well as violence in order to make their environment safe and secure.

“Youths should not allow their emotion to cause commotion, especially as they go about watching football matches.

“They should exhibit a high sense of positive solidarity, rather than make enemies because someone does not belong to their clubs,’’ he said.
