According to the lawmaker, the youths are the leaders of today – Oduah said all the youths need is a mentor, guidance but most importantly great skills A former minister of aviation and lawmaker representing Anambra North in the upper chamber, Senator Stella Oduah, has disagreed with the saying that youths are the leaders of tomorrow. Punch reports that Oduah stated that the youths are leaders of today. According to her, all the youths need is the necessary support and enabling environment. Legit.ng gathers that former minister, who said this at a youth convention in Anambra, said the youths can reach their full potential if they are productively enabled.
She said: “They say that the youths are the leaders of tomorrow but I believe the contrary. I believe that youths are leaders of today. All they need is the necessary support and enabling environment. Also, the youths can reach their full potential if they are productively enabled. This is one of the underscoring points of my action for what I call Fundamental Human Capital Development. “The need to build a constituency of independent, enterprising and self-reliant young men and women has always been my motivating factor for seeking elective office. I believe that our young people, that is the youths, all they need is a mentor, guidance but most importantly great skills and talents built in them.
“My talk today is about the amazing life that is in all of us. The amazing life that the youths can have if only we can train them; If only we can give them the opportunity to emulate that which is good. If only we can provide the way to go. In doing so, we need nothing less than 2,500 youths in different skills.
