Youths are not leaders of tomorrow —Stella Oduah



A former Minister of Aviation and senator representing Anambra North , Stella Oduah , has disagreed with the saying that the youths are the leaders of tomorrow .According to Oduah , the youths only need to have their potential productively enabled and the country will see a fast rise in their abilities to lead today as opposed to the tomorrow that ‘ never comes . ’

The former minister, who said this at a youth convention in Anambra , noted that certain requirements must be met before the youths could have an amazing life .

She said, “ They say that the youths are the leaders of tomorrow but I believe the contrary . I believe that youths are leaders of today . All they need is the necessary support and enabling environment . Also , the youths can reach their full potential if they are productively enabled. This is one of the underscoring points of my action for what I call Fundamental Human Capital Development .

“The need to build a constituency of independent, enterprising and self -reliant young men and women has always been my motivating factor for seeking elective office . I believe that our young people, that is the youths , all they need is a mentor , guidance but most importantly great skills and talents built in them .

“My talk today is about the amazing life that is in all of us . The amazing life that the youths can have if only we can train them ; If only we can give them the opportunity to emulate that which is good . If only we can provide the way to go . In doing so , we need nothing less than 2 , 500 youths in different skills . ”
