TOPIC: THE NEED FOR YOUTHS ENGAGEMENT IN BUILDING A NEW NIGERIA.
My fellow compatriots, I must confess, I’m motivated by your response even at a short notice. Indeed, this is a sign that Nigeria Youths especially Abians are tired of the way things are being run in this country and the state respectively. With this display, I can say confidently that Nigeria will be better.
Before I proceed further with my points, I would want to seize this opportunity to thank the entire Nigerian Youths for saying no to the way things pertaining to National Development are being handled. By simply saying OUR MUMU DON DO, we have directly started a conversation for a better Nigeria. Less I forget, I will love to thank the entire IYLN(YPC) Abia State Chapter led by our own capacity leader, Comr. Eme Udochukwu Prince( IYLN Abia State Chairman) for developing the zeal to help fine-tune her State and the Nation at large.
Now to the topic: THE NEED FOR YOUTHS ENGAGEMENT IN BUILDING A NEW NIGERIA.
Youth according to Oxford dictionary advanced learner 8th edition is the part of life following childhood; the period of existence proceeding maturity or age.
Going from the second version of this definition, Youthful age is the age of EXISTENCE. It is the time when a person has all the energy, time, motivation, etc to tackle any problem. This age shouldn’t be sold on the platform of mediocrity and frivolities. Once this age is lost, regret becomes paramount. An error not corrected at this age, is mostly not correctable again.
Though chance may happen to that person, but the percentage of people who may have this chance is way under average.
For the purpose of this discourse, it is good to streamline our definition of WHO A YOUTH IS, based on Age.
