Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, has advised youths in the country to take their destinies into their hands by taking up leadership roles through innovative ideas.
Osinbajo gave the advice at the 2017 National Youth Convention of the Youth Ministry, Church of the Lord Prayer Fellowship, with the theme, “Unfailing Love’’, on Saturday in Abuja.
“There is this popular saying that youths are leaders of tomorrow but I would like you to know that the tomorrow we are talking about is now.
“This is because the youths are leading in the world now, both in ideas and innovations and that is why we have the Facebook developer, Mark Zuckerberg, who is in his 30s.“One of the things that you need to do as youths are to start to take responsibilities and rise up with the commitment to God,’’ he said.
“There are no ready-made and easy solutions to these problems but could be that there are possible answers in the hands of each of you looking for jobs.
“It may be that what is required is to be a little more pro-active in your way of looking at life,’’ he said.
