Osun Speaker Tasks Youths On Entrepreneurial Skills

The Speaker, Osun State House of Assembly, Mr Najeem Salaam, advised youths not to wait for scarce white collar jobs but to embrace entrepreneurial skills.
Salaam gave the advice while distributing welfare packages to Batch “A” National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members in Ejigbo Local Government Area of Osun.
The speaker said the youths should look inward to discover what they could do to empower themselves rather than wait for scarce white collar jobs.
Salaam urged the corps members to start engaging themselves with vocational skills. The speaker, who noted that the aim of establishing NYSC was to promote unity in the country, urged the corps members to learn and embrace the culture of their host communities.
Earlier, Mrs Mojisola Eboagwu, the State Coordinator, NYSC, commended the speaker for donating welfare packages to the corps members. Eboagwu said the gesture had shown that the corps members were welcome in the state. She called on other members of the assembly to emulate the speaker’s gesture.
Prof. Oyesoji Aremu, a lecturer at the University of Ibadan, who delivered a paper titled “The Youth and the Challenge of 21st Century,” urged the corps members to embrace the value of self sacrifice.
Aremu also advised the corps members against being influenced by the “quick money” syndrome.
Reports say that mattresses, buckets and other welfare packages were distributed to the corps members at the occasion.
