“As a government, we will continue to do our best to provide the necessary support they require, this no doubt is a challenging period for our country, but we must not lose hope.

“It’s time for us to have high hope and begin to think out of box, we cannot continue to live in a regimented circle. As kogites, we must begin to think in a very new direction, we must govern our strength towards productivity”.

“I want the youths to adapt to the I can spirit, nothing is impossible when we are determined. So let us bring ourselves to a point of determination and make the best out of this challenging period.

“We must be ready; ready to think productively. The responsibilities of our future lies on our shoulders, nobody is coming to do it for us, we must rise up as one and build for ourselves the future we want to live in.”

Asiwaju advised them to change their attitude and mentality, be law-abiding and maintain peace always so as to enable the government to continue to attract more investors into the State, adding that he is saddled with the task of changing the mindsets of the state youths from those who were waiting to be given employment to the ones creating employment opportunities and an entrepreneurship.
