The second edition of our annual National youth day tagged “Sustainability: “Our Future, Our Challenge” is aimed at sensitising and equipping the youth against the challenge ahead, educating them on inhabiting an extraordinary life in the future simply because the prospect begins now”

An opening part speech from Comrade Nurudeen Ganiyu Olawale (Coordinator, National Youth Council of Nigeria, Ikorodu North LCDA branch) as the youth body organised a mandate talk forum to elucidate inexperienced youngsters across the LCDA.

The event seized niche at the Lagos state polytechnic {LASPOTECH} 500 seater hall with schools from neighbourhoods and outstanding guests converging for academic betrothal which spanned for over 3 hours to the delight of all participants.

With Mr Jumah Taylor (Representative the Rector), Hon Apanishile Ameen Vice-chairman Ikorodu North LCDA, Mr Henry Okor (NDLEA), Comrade Oba Lekan Biliamiu (NYCN state chairman), Are Abdul Fatai (VC Lagos East NYCN), Mr Odubote (Rep HOD Agric youth & social Development Ikorodu North LCDA), Mr Isikilu Yekini (CDC chairman Ikorodu North), Mr Yusuf Qassim (the year 2020 Best teacher), a bowl of contention centred on the ‘youth as a catalyst for Nation building’.

In proceeding his speech the youth coordinator asserted “My leadership will not relent in ensuring peaceful coexistence between the youth and those in positions of authority at the same time we will continue to organise youth-oriented programmes in line with the THEMES agenda of the current governor, Babatunde Olushola Sanwo Olu”

While using the medium to call on the Government at various levels to impact the youths for a better future, the youth coordinator admonished the youth to desist from all torment and social vices such as Drug Abuse, internet fraud, hooligan, and cultism.

State chairman (NYCN) Comrade Lekan Billiamin Oba, in his brief remark charged participants at the discourse to take up their life challenge as a personalised responsibility.

“In as much as we’re looking at the government for more, we still have a lot of work to do within us. We must focus more on what we can do to develop our nation and replenish our enthusiasm. That’s the vigour to make good of all our aspirations”

“As I will always say, it is collaborative and collective bargaining to elevate our economy, so let’s channel our productivity in ways and norms to enhance not only our criterion of living but also our environmental landscape” Billiamin Oba Added

Mr Henry Okor from the NDLEA advised the students to resist every form of drug abuse that would deter their plans from becoming promising youngsters.

“There is virtually no one living without a goal or ambition in life, it is how we get there that matters. Abusing drugs, alcohol and other body draining forces will only hinder and slow down our quest for greatness in life. Some have even died due to addiction which is not a secret to everyone today”

“Abstinence is the key to staying onset and moving toward accomplishing every life objective. Heeding the sort of friends we dwell is a major advantage in this area and so we must maintain our sanities locked on achieving our dreams alone” Mr Henry Okor asserted

Hon Apanishile Ameen (vice-chairman of Ikorodu north) Representing the Executive chairman of Ikorodu North LCDA (Bldr Adeola Adebisi Banjo), speaking amidst the Q&A oration compelled students to speak for themselves and avoid peer pressures of all conditions to keep them purpose-driven.

“Our home is the first level of government and I do not think it is fair to always complain about the government when we don’t practice what we’re preaching internally. Our influences are not a plus and we’re always compelled by peer pressures to live beyond our expectations”

“Youth in nation-building means if we want our voice to be heard then our mode of operation must reflect the ideal Nigeria we’re clamouring for. Our responsiveness to actively partake in the progressive acts of good governance is also on the back burner”

“There is nothing we cannot achieve if we work together, but it begins with us” Hon Apanishile averred
