I am a lover of innovative thinking, and I admire youth who are passionate about bringing positive change to their lives and society. I appreciate young individuals who can critically assess how they can influence their environment without solely blaming the government or succumbing to laziness.

I wish I had ten youths like you who are passionate about their endeavors and actively contribute to society with the education they have acquired. They don’t wait for the government to empower them after graduation. With such dedicated individuals, the atmosphere of the village or the entire state where they originate would undoubtedly flourish. Femi Awoyinka, you have my full support in all your endeavors
