A Chieftain of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP), Comrade Olufemi Ajadi Oguntoyinbo has urged Nigerian youths to always envision spirit of entrepreneurship rather than wait endlessly for White Collar jobs.
He said this becomes necessary as the economy has gone bad and government is unable to provide millions of youths with employment even after graduation from schools.
Ajadi made this known at the Grand finale of a two weeks free mobile phone repairing training programme he organised for about 50 youths in Ibafo Area of Ogun State.
He said the training programme is part of his support for the teeming youths under the present harsh economy.
He empowered 15 of the youths that participated in the programme with valuable set of phone repairing tools worth thousands of Naira.
Ajadi who was represented at the occasion by the Ogun State Publicity Secretary of the NNPP, Comrade Olowu Olayemi Omokehinde, encouraged the youths to be determined and see themselves as future entrepreneurs.
He said entrepreneurship require strong determination adding that the beginning are usually tough but the end is more reassuring and enjoyable.
Ajadi said he is dedicated to empowering Nigerian youths, describing the act as a call from God to help the downtrodden.
He urges the participants in the programme and the beneficiaries of the phone repairing equipment to be good ambassadors, saying this would encourage him to do more.
The facilitator of the program who is also the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Hasbunallah Communication Ventures, Abdul Akeem Yusuf was grateful for the successful completion of the training and wish all the students success in their new acquired knowledge in communication sector.
He urged them to see the training as an opportunity, which must be used to the fullest in order to improve their livelihood, he noted that some of their peers are out there looking for such opportunities to acquire such knowledge.
Also speaking at the occasion, the Minister in Charge of Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pinnacle of Glory Parish, Pastor Godswill Matthew Inyang, praised Ajadi’s role in empowering the beneficiaries.
He encouraged the recipients to make the most use of the opportunity by supporting their church, families, and the broader communities.
He prayed for the continued success of the beneficiaries, urging God to provide them with the ability to support their families and others.
One of the beneficiaries, Stephen Akpan, expressed gratitude to Ambassador Ajadi for teaching them how to become self-reliant rather than merely providing temporary assistance.
Another beneficiary, Mr. Godsway Nyatuame, acknowledged that the programme was introduced to him through a church member.
He lauded Ajadi for not only instructing them in mobile phone repairing but also helped them with the necessary tools and accessories in carrying out their jobs
The phone repairing tools were presented to the beneficiaries by the donor’s wife, Mrs. Oyindamola Motunrola Ajadi, and Olowu Olayemi Omokehinde.
