Nigerian youths have been charged to not to dismay by insecurity and restiveness in some parts of the land but to look into the future with hope that all will be well.
The Ekiti State Deputy Governor, Prof Modupe Adelabu, who made the charge, however, urged the youths to take the bull by the horns by being change agents who will arrest the drift and reshape the country.
Prof Adelabu spoke at the weekend as special guest of honour at the graduation of some pupils at Grange School, on Harold Shodipo Crescent, GRA, Ikeja, Lagos State.
According to her, the youths have what it takes to secure a promising and brighter tomorrow for themselves as long as they refrain from folding their arms but rising up against injustice as future leaders.
She also reminded parents to pay due attention to the upbringing of their wards, stressing that a child’s development can only be total if the home and the school play complementing roles.
Besides, the Deputy Governor urged parents to prepare their children for future leadership roles by bringing them up in the way of their Lord, even as she described education as the best legacy any parent could bequeath to his/her ward.
The special guest of honour told her audience that education has been given a priority attention as the fourth on the Eight-Point Agenda of the Ekiti State government under the leadership of Governor Kayode Fayemi.
She said education and human capital development has been pursued with utmost seriousness since the administration took the saddle on October 16, 2010.
The Deputy Governor also charged the pupils to be good ambassadors of their homes and the school, which she noted has invested in them what they require for future challenges, assuring them that “light awaits you at the end of the tunnel”.
