Youth development is as a core aspect of human
and national progress in Nigeria. The study suggests the
development of young people as the means of poverty
reduction. It indicates that amidst cultural, ethnic, and
religious diversities, and in the light of threats to human
life and property, the development of the youth is the way
to promoting peace and unity, justice, and security.

The book argues on a two-fold contribution: While the
Nigerian Church is to intensify efforts in the active
participation of lay Christians in politics, the State is to
tackle critical areas to ensure a decent standard of living
for all.
