Ajimobi tasks Nigerian youths on mental development

Gov. Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State on Friday charged Nigerian youths to develop themselves mentally for national development. Ajimobi gave the task during the presentation of the award of Pillar of Youth to him by members of the National Youth Council of Nigeria in Ibadan. “I count it as a great pleasure to be honoured by a body that is national in outlook and truly youthful in membership, Oyo state people and myself are happy about it. “But I want to advise that the youths of Nigeria need a lot of improvement to be great and this requires mental development. “I want you to be resolute because leadership requires mental development and you must also endeavour and strife to be men of honour,” he said. The governor also reminded the body that honour would only come to those who deserved it. The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the NYCN, a Lagos chapter of the body was led to Ibadan on the presentation ceremony by its Chairman, Mr Babatunde Adeleke. Adeleke had earlier said that Ajimobi was considered for the award because of his administration’s urban renewal, beautification and road construction programmes. “NYCN deems it fit to honour leaders like Ajimobi who considered it necessary to change their society and his government is excellent in restoration of peace to Oyo state,” he said. He said that the body appreciated the way and manner Ajimobi tackled the issue of insecurity and youth unemployment, saying “this commendation is to encourage continuity in governance.”
