An Ogun – based entrepreneur, Mr. Olanrewaju George, has urged the government at all levels to put measures in place to help the youths maximise their potentials in Nigeria.
George, also the Chief Executive Officer, Oladanel Groups, gave the advice in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos as the country celebrates its 61st independence anniversary.
He said that Nigeria youths remain the hope of the nation and building a nation of our dreams remains a collective effort.
“As individuals, it is time we shun all ethnic and religious violence that seek to tear us apart.
“As a government, they should focus on human capacity development, infrastructure, economic growth, security of lives and properties that will long speak after they are out of office.
“Now is the time to dig inward and put Nigeria and Nigerians first that remains the essence of today,” George said.
George added that principles that would propel the nation to attain its true potential should be guided.
“As a nation, we have been faced with a lot of challenges, it should not turn us against each other but be the magnet that draws us closer.
“Rather than apportioning blame or pointing fingers, this is the time for sober reflection as a nation.
“Government should revisit those policies that have to make each Nigerians lives easier not cause problems.
“I believe Nigeria has hope, which will only come to reality with the right policies,” he said.
