Youths Tasked to Leverage on Constructive Engagements

Youths have been tasked to leverage on technological innovations, constructive and meaningful engagements for nation building rather than resorting to violence.

 Ogun State Commissioner for Finance and Chief Economic Adviser, Mr. Dapo Okubadejo, gave the charge during a courtesy visit of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) to his office at Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta, saying the student body needed to be proactive in shaping the path of honest and effective leadership.

          Mr. Okubadejo described the youths as crucial to shaping the future of the country, as they play integral role in national development, assuring the delegation of government’s commitment to continue to provide social infrastructure, adding that efforts would be sustained to ensure citizens feel the effects of the state’s development drive.

“Recognizing the higher stake the youths have is the success of our country. You need to use your voice responsibly with the potential impact of constructive engagement”, he said.

Speaking earlier, the NANS Senate President, Segun Ekundina, lauded the state government for its educational initiatives and incentives towards the student body, citing the robust consideration given to them during the recent approval of a N5bn palliative.

He said the student body was proud to associate with the government of Prince Dapo Abiodun, noting that the governor was student-friendly in prioritising students’ welfare.
