Welcome to the friends of Nigeria @friendsofnija.blogspot.com.ng

Call it “a wake call” and you wouldn't be wrong, as the conscious youths of Akwa Ibom state yesterday gathered in a brain storming session at the Town Hall of Ikot Ekpene Local Government Council of the State to chart the way forward and to position themselves for the leadership responsibility of the future.

The youths, in their 2016 Leadership Round Table discussion, challenged and admonished each other to reinvent themselves and imbibed self-development, positive character and to look inward instead of waiting on government or only looking for the white collar-job, which does not exist.

The Chairman of the occasion, Mr. Nse Willie, the Regional
Manager of Sky Bank, South South, expressed delight at the gathering and council participants, just like every key note speaker after speaker, to look inward and get the necessary and needed skills that can give them an edge in the present Government of the state’s drive to industrialised and develop the state. Counselling that, “If they don’t get the attendance skill, they cannot fit in”

Addressing the participants in his key note address, the president of Abom Itiaita foundation, Sir Patrick Umoh, KSJ reminded the youth that they owe it to God and society the obligation of encouraging their leaders in actualizing these huge socio-economic demands of their people. “It is true that every man has but one youth, and considering the consequences of employing that well, we have  reason to think ourselves very rich, for that gone, all the wealth of the world will not purchase another” The president reminded.
