Invest In Us For Greater Tomorrow, Ondo Youths Tell Speaker, Oladiji.

By Precious Oluwole

Youth in Ondo Kingdom have called on the Speaker, Rt. Honourable Oladiji Olamide Adesanmi to give them priority attention when embarking on his numerous empowerment programmes.

They made the plea at a meet-the-youth programme organised by Rt. Honourable Oladiji for youth in Ondo East and Ondo West.

The programme was meant to interact with the body of youth in Ondo East and West Federal Constituency with a view to collating their views on how best to impact on their Ives.

The forum attracted youth in Ondo city, drawn from different sections and groups in the city.

While addressing the youth body, the Speaker thanked them for their support at all times adding that no efforts will be spared toward emplacing them for a better future ahead.

The Speaker who was represented by his Special Assistant on Youth mobilisation, Akintayo Akinjolie enjoined the youth body to shun vices and be upright at all times in order to benefit maximally from the unfolding political agenda in Ondo State.

In their responses, the youth requested the Speaker to always push their interests in various government programmes.

While calling for regular empowerment of the youth, they called on government to prioritise bursary for students to cushion the current harsh economic situation which they claimed is randomly forcing them out of school.

The youth equally pleaded with government to do something to redress the current unemployment rate among the youth.

Others who spoke at the meeting stressed the need to be more security conscious while activities of land grabbers should be checmated in the ancient city.

They appealed to government to stop the current ploughing of land in some parts of Ondo west, claiming that it could lead to joblessness and instigate vices among the youth.

The meet- the-youth programme is expected to come up regularly.
