Mr Ikechukwu Anyanwu -Publisher Arise Afrika
NIGERIAN YOUTHS LEADERSHIP AND THE WAY FORWARDA youth is an individual filled with vigor, activeness, strength and capability. One who has his future ahead with much value to offer to the world and ready for service. The continuity of the nation depends solely on the youths.
Leadership is the ability of an individual to influence the behavior of others and resources in a positive direction. Leading and service are both qualities of a good leader. A leader must have undergone training, passed through school, through a period of service, learnt and become grounded on the ethics of leadership. A leader is a problem solver. In today’s world where the government can no longer foot the bill of every citizen, this is not the time to complain about the government.
What are you doing as a youth? A song writer said “brighten the corner where you are” this calls for all hands to be on deck, you are a leader in your own area.We are engulfed roundabout with difficulties; over 60 percent of our populations live below poverty line. This situation has left our youths with nothing other than poverty and despires.
Many have given up because they find nothing useful to do and have become apostles of destruction.If at all we are going to handle this continually changing world, we have to adapt our selves by being resourceful and creative. While a wave is still forming a long way off in a distance, surfers know that it is a time to move a paddle out and get in position. We cannot bring change as youths without a burning desire for it.
It is this desire that creates ambition, which is the inner propelling force that drives an individual to pursue positive change; this will make us undaunted and unquenchable. Let every youth therefore be re-engineered to pursue education as to acquire the requisite skills to help us communicate our thoughts and ideas to help solve challenging situations in our environment, society and the nation at large which is one of the aims of acquiring knowledge at any level.
He who is not informed is deformed; a deformed person morally or intellectually cannot lead well.Education enables us to identify a societal problem and proffer solutions to it. We were trained in school not to graduate and join the teaming population of undergraduates. Why are you sent to school? You are sent to school not just to acquire education but to be trained to affect humanity positively, education refines our God given talents. It brings out the real you making you more fortified to take charge.
There is need to harness entrepreneurial skills which will lead to self reliance. Show me a youth with ideas, for that is a born leader.In other to execute your ideas you actually need the drive, and determination to take risk.You may start small but dream big.You cannot be seeking for job when you can be your own boss. Become an employer and boost the nation’s economy. For economic development, ideas should be refined and harnessed into commercial value. Anywhere there is inefficiency is an opportunity for innovation.Look around you, what can you do to make the society better?
Ensure you are at Imo Students Leadership Summit to know how to move forward . You will be equipped and empowered for the future.
The FUTURE dawns for us. Become all you can be, come chat up your future at this summit come 20th & 21st September 2016 at IICC Owerri.
You have what it takes.
Are you a leader or aspiring leader? Then you can’t afford to miss this.
