Hon. (Comrade) Chinedu Ogah, OON, who represents Ikwo/Ezza South Federal Constituency in the National Assembly has during the weekend, given reasons for shaving the dread hair of youths.
Ogah appreciated the general public for reacting to his good work of correcting the youths.
However, while some applauded him, few criticized the act calling him names.
Briefing journalists at his Item Amagu Ikwo home, Ogah explained that he is a reformer that leaves by example and that he cannot watch youths from his place waste rather he wants the success of everyone.
Ogah noted that as a leader, it is his duty and responsibility to encourage youths, and enthrone social, emotional, and personal development.
Therefore, I embarked on a journey of correcting youths long ago. This is to guide them on the rightful way of living.
He said,” I am a transformer and I am a reformer, I try to encourage the youths to be useful to themselves, their families, and
the community because if they are doing well I will benefit.
“Anybody that is criticizing us for reforming the youths is against the growth of the society. Yes, we have rules and laws, if some youths start misbehaving, as their leader, I should advise them on the right thing to do. I should lead by example. That is why I take action whenever I receive complaints of any youth misbehaving.
“We engage in guidance and counseling to transform the lives of those that are trying to ruin their lives, he said “.
Ogah told journalists that the youth whose dreadlock was shaved had come with the parents in appreciation for correcting their son and educating him on the best way to behave and live as a promising son.
