The event was hosted by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama.
The former president said insecurity is a global phenomenon that is not peculiar to Nigeria due to the excesses of terrorists across the world.
“I was there before and of course, you know there is a lot of insecurity.
“All that we can do is to collectively support the government, encourage the soldiers and other security operatives to do more for our safety,” Jonathan said.
The former president said unity and peace must be collectively upheld by all especially the youth, adding that as a former President he knew the meaning of peace.
He stated that Nigerian youths sometimes engaged in all kinds of confrontation, recalling his conversation with one of his friends.”I was discussing with one of my friends and I said look, in Nigeria, they appear not to even have a national youth body. Because in most cases, the regional youth bodies are stronger than the national youth body.
