According to report reaching oyogist.com, the Director of the National Orientation Agency (NOA), Adamawa, Malam Mohammad Gabdo, has reportedly blamed the insecurity in the country to bad parental upbringing.
He stated that the lack of good parenting brought about the increase in crime rates in the country.
“Parents are the root cause of all the insecurity, drug abuse, kidnapping, human trafficking, sexual, and gender-based violence because they have neglected their responsibilities.”
“Some have attributed the security situation in the country to politics and bad governance, and if you look at those that cause the insecurity they are our sons and brothers.”
“We have to call our children to order, always monitor their movements, and advise them to do the right things.”
“Let them also know the implication or dangers associated with committing evil because if we fail to correct them, they can be exposed to immorality.”
“We should also know that government cannot do everything for us. There are other necessary things we can do to toward the development of the country,’’ he added. (NAN)
