Being A Speech delivered by the Akoko North West Student Union Government (ANWSUG) President – Elect, Today Sunday 31st January, 2021 at the Grand Finale of SIA Foundation’s free intensive Practical Skills and Acquisition Empowerment Programme, Ogbagi Youth Centre, Ogbagi Akoko, Ondo State.
This is borne out of my deep-rooted belief that entrepreneurship is the single most critical ingredient for economic empowerment and job creation.
I’m honoured indeed to witness this impactful programme and I want to commend the Founder of this foundation, and the governing council and of course the members of the administration for thinking it wise and proper to institute this empowerment at the critical state of our crumbling economy.
I am equally honoured to enjoy the rare privilege of speaking to young people – the leaders of today, and indeed all beneficiaries.Knowledge is the greatest gift, there is no gift as great as knowledge to mankind and to the world.
When people are knowledgeable, they become good entrepreneurs, they do great things for mankind but when people are not informed and do not have knowledge, they go astray.
“Who’s considered the incredible power of thank you? Those two words express gratitude, humility, understanding, as well as the acknowledgement. Thank you Admiral Samuel Ilesanmi Alade (Rtd) for bringing this great priveledge for benefits and economic growth of our community.
There’s a phrase I’m sure everyone knows: it takes a village to raise a child. In this case it’s not a child that’s been raised but awareness and an award for a long needed sustainable community resources.
In particular thank you to everyone who sees this Programme as a rare opportunity and key into to elevate poverty and promote economic sustainability.
whom also understood and shared my conviction that communities are healthiest when its resources are equally shared, and that the ability to read underpins long term social and economic well being.
So, I commend again this kind of initiative that brings leaders and the people to whom the future truly belongs to interact and share perspectives as we look forward to more live touching programmes for our students and youths in the local Government.
Once again thank you Admiral Samuel Ilesanmi Alade (Rtd), Hon. Elder Akande and all dignitaries present at the Grand Finale and thank you on behalf of Akoko North West Student Union Government and all those who will cross that bridge to a brighter future.”
