…says Strike, Protest can’t fix Nigeria

In commemoration of the 2022 International Youth Day, the Chairman of Medical and Health Workers’ Union of Nigeria (MHWUN) in Ekiti State, Comrade Ajoloko Oluwafemi has called on Youths in the country not to be too ambitious in the pursuit of their dream.

In the programme themed: “Intergenerational Solidarity: Creating a World for All Ages” held in Ado-Ekiti, the state capital, Comrade Oluwafemi Ajoloko added many Nigerian Youths have ruined their own lives due to over ambition

“My advice to the youth is not to be over ambitious, let’s be contended with the little of whatsoever we have so that we can become the future leaders.”

“If you look at the death toll of our youth today, it is as result of their over ambition. So please, don’t be over ambitious.”

On her part, the former national treasurer of the Union, who is also the lead speaker, Comrade Fabusuyi Modupe, called on the youths to stop receiving tips from leaders which eventually leads them to choosing bad leaders, adding that strike and protest can’t fix Nigeria.

She equally charged the Elders to give room for the involvement of youth in their dealings and desist from sidelining them from their activities.

She noted the essence of the theme to bringing cohesion within the youth by creating world for all ages.

“Our Youth should speak up to choose good leaders and stop receiving peanuts from them. I also want them to know that strike and protest can’t fix Nigeria, you have to know what you are doing.”

“The Elders should also bring youth into what they are doing. They should not be left behind and be sincere with their promise which is ‘not to young to rule.”

Speaking on health issues, Dr Olumide Obe, the Director of Hospital Services and Training, Ministry of Health noted that the importance of youths to the success of any society could not not be overemphasized.

Dr. Obe who was represented by Abiola O. Maxwell stressed the need to give youths better sense of belonging.
