A non-governmental organisation, Omooba Obaruwa Foundation, has called for increased investments in Nigerian youths to achieve the anticipated greatness of the country.
The founder, Prince Adekunle Ayoola, said in a statement that no nation could be greater than its investment in the citizens, especially it’s younger ones.
“It’s just appropriate for the government at all levels in the country to increase their support for the development of education as this is quite pivotal to having a country we could all be proud of,” he said
Ayoola was represented by the Chairman of the foundation, Mr Babatunde Ayoola, who made the call during the prize-giving day of Baptist Primary School, Ogbogbo, via Ijebu Ode as well as Community Primary School, Iperin in Odogbolu Local Government Area of Ogun State.
According to him, given the role of education in the development of any society, privileged individuals and corporate bodies should also join efforts with the government to provide qualitative education and other support for the development of the Nigerian youth.
Adekunle said that the various interventions of his foundation are aimed at complementing all that the government is doing to provide education for Nigerian children while also ensuring that no one is left behind.
He advised the pupils of the school and Nigerian youth as a whole to learn to stay focus, embrace hardwork and shun vices that could distract them from attaining greatness urging them to take a cue from the new world record holder in athletics, Tobi Amusan.
