‘Nigerian Youths are Not Leaders on Tommorow’ – Says Stella Oduah

The senator representing Anambra North, Stella Oduah, has said youths are leaders of today not Tomorrow. She spoke at a youth convention in Anambra State.

A statement yesterday quoted the senator:

“They say youths are leaders of tomorrow but I believe contrary. I believe youths are leaders of today. All they need is the support and enabling environment. Also, youths can reach their full potential if they are productively enabled.
This is one of the underscoring points of my action for what I call Fundamental Human Capital Development.

“The need to build a constituency of independent enterprising and self-reliance young men and woman has always been my motivating factor for seeking elective office.
I believe that our young people, that is the youth, all they need is a mentor, guidance but most importantly great skills and talents built in them.

“My talk today is about the amazing life that is in all of us. The amazing life that the youth can have if only we can train them;
If only we can give them the opportunity to emulate that which is good. If only we can provide the way to go.
In doing so, we need nothing less than 2,500 youths in different skills. Our goal as a constituency is to polish that potential in every youth until it shines. Just like jewelry becomes beautiful after being polished.
The thing is, when you see a diamond, it does not look good when it is unpolished but when it is polished it starts to glitter. That is what skill and requisition, human capital development that is what it does. This is what each and every one of us must understand.”
