Elder statesman, Chief Linus Okom has charged youths to be patriotic in their dealings as a way to develop the country.

Mr. Okom who is referred to as “Ada Ebekwarra” stated this Monday in Calabar when he was presented with a gold medal by Mr. Akwaji DonHenry following the conclusion of the Akwaji Henry unity football competition in Bekwara local government area.

He commended Mr. Akwaji for his vision and said the medal presentation has “provoked” him and if youths were to behave like Mr. Akwaji, Nigeria will be better.

“Young men of your like, if they had or they can behave the way you are trying to, it will be a welcomed idea in Nigeria,” said Chief Okom.

He continued: “The motivational attitude is clear here, what you did yesterday and today sums your future.”

He charged youths to be patriotic and sow positive seeds for their future.

“You don’t reap where you don’t sow, you reap where you sow. I advise you to mobilize for good,” he said.

He also charged Mr. Akwaji to “take patience in faith and show what is called parochial patriotism. Parochial in the sense of your local government Bekwara.”

Earlier, Mr. Akwaji said that he had come to present the medal to Chief Okom whom he said was like gold to the Bekwara people.

“We have come to present this gold medal to you because you are our gold,” Mr. Akwaji said.
