Kano – Alhaji Aminu Dabo, former Managing Director of Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA), has advised Nigerian youths to avoid acts capable of destroying their future.
He made the call when the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) presented him with an award in Kano on Tuesday.
He said the advice was necessary in view of the fact that they were the future leaders of the country.
He advised that “as future leaders of Nigeria, youths are supposed to exhibit good conduct and avoid anything that will destroy their future.’’
He commended the Association for finding him worthy of the award and urged members to face their studies with the seriousness it deserved to enable them to contribute their quota toward the development of the country.
Earlier, the NANS Deputy Senate President, Mr Justin Nathaniel, said the decision to honour the recipient was in recognition of his immense contributions to the development of the society.
He said “this award is given to the recipient in recognition of his immense contributions toward societal development, educational upliftment, youth development and service to the nation.’’
He called on the elite and wealthy individuals in the society to contribute their quota toward the development of education in the state and the country at large.
The Association honoured the former NPA boss with the Grand Commander of Nigerian Students award. (NAN)
