World Youth Day:Empowerment Will Reduce Challenges of Young Persons– Ayo Fatokun
Oyo lawmaker, Ayotunde Fatokun on Wednesday advised youths not to allow themselves to be used for destructive activities in spite of the prevailing economic challenges in the country.
Fatokun said this in Ibadan while speaking with journalists in hiss office in commemoration of this year’s International Day for the Youths.
“The youths in Oyo State are change agents because in an unjust society, silence is a crime. The youths should develop their positive dreams.
“The youths should wake up and act fast, as youths we must not sleep and we should not be divided by religion, culture, tradition, and it is time to say bye to illicit behaviours.”
Fatokun who doubles as the Chairman Parliamentary Coincil enjoined the youths to key into policies of the present administration of Governor Seyi Makinde for a better future.
“Unfortunately youths in some parts of the country are being used to stage demonstrations in support of corruption, which is does not portray us as responsible citizens.”
Fatokun said the empowerment of the youths would reduce some of the challenges of young persons in the country.
