Ooni of Ife tasks youths on taking back Nigeria
The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, Ojaja II, has charged Nigerian youths to take back Nigeria by preparing themselves for higher leadership roles, insisting that the country belonged to the youths and not the elders.
The monarch stated this while launching the N10billion endowment fund and N100 million professorial chairs at the Michael and Cecilia Ibru University (MCIU), Agbarha-Otor, Delta State yesterday.
He said over 60 per cent of Nigeria’s population were under 30 years old and admonished the youths to start claiming what naturally belonged to them in the country.
His words: “In this country over 60 per cent are under the age of 30. What good things can they say about this nation? How well have they prepared themselves for leadership of the nation?
