    Following the increase in spate of crime in the society through the instrumentality of youth who are seen as the soft targets to perpetuating most ills, the National President Igbeagu Autonomous CommunitY, Izzi LGA, Ebonyi State, Comrade Emeka Ede on Thursday, advised Ndiechi Ndegu youth to eschew activities capable of breaching peace in the area.
    Addressing Executive members of the youth shortly after their successful election held at the village town hall, Comrade Ede tasked them to remain instruments for championing positive change as no community develops amidst rancour and bitterness.
    He charged all the elected officials to see leadership position as a call to Service,and urged them to support the fight against kindred dictonomy.
    Earlier in his speech, the outgoing Chairman, Mr. Basil Itumo appreciated the people for giving him the chance to serve them, noting that all the Executive members under his leadership voluntarily accepted the dissolution of power and promised to support the new Executive to ensure they succeed.
    The outgoing Chairman,Basil Itumo, assured the executive of their support, hinting that their transition is from God  and charged them to introduce change in the area.
    “I came to power with no cash in our pocket but I source money for our village day, but to the glory of God it was successful, with some little balance with which we continue using the cash to grow the village and our town hall for which some valuables were bought, and I am advising all youth to get registered”.
    The electoral Chairman,Hon.Sunday Nwuguru, appealed to Igbeagu youth president to appoint one of the executive members to be part of his Leadership for proper representation of the people while he urged them to help bring electricity to the area.
    The village Head, Chief Chijioke Ogbuewu said time has come for all to come together and walk in line with the programme and policies of the state government for the development of the place, stressing that the unity of the clan lies in their hands.
    Lending his voice,a popular musician Elobe Egbara, advised them to walk with the elders even as they attract electricity to the people.
    Management Committee member Representing Coordinator Igbeagu DC, Ogbuja advised the Executive to help attract all that due to the people at all times.
    The newly elected president onbehalf of the new Executive, Comrade Chinwe Nwite, said though he would not make any promises as he is yet to know what they have in their pocket but said he would ensure that all youths get registered.
    He revealed that soon a suggestion box would be set at the village town hall for general contribution to the growth of the place and assured of ensuring all must register by subsidized the fee while appreciated the youth for their support.
