IKORODU (LAGOS STATE) – A talent management executive, Mr Emmanuel Othe, on Sunday urged youths in the country to desist from activities that could compromise the nation’s social justice and virile community.
Othe told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos that youths, irrespective of their political affiliation, should participate collectively within their immediate community to generate solutions to common problems.
“You must see yourself as a community builder and engage in social services that help to improve and advance social wellbeing.
“You must have a genuine hunger for social change which is rooted in deep love for others.
“Always remember that everything you do is a product of your environment – the kind of people you associate with, or things you are exposed to,’’ he said.
The executive said the need for social change and community building had become pertinent because of current realities and generational transitions in all facets of human endeavour – politics, religion, and economy.[pro_ad_display_adzone id=”10″]
He lamented that many youths were either caught up or carried away by vices that threatened their future, saying that “you (youths) must have a vision, passion, courage and credibility.
“So, you must change your thinking to have better values because what you do, how you do it, the effect of what you do gives rise to social change,’’ Othe said.
He advised youths to emulate the likes of Obafemi Awolowo and Mother Theresa, whom, according to him, served humanity through their works. (NAN)
