Governor Hope Uzodimma of Imo State has said that it is not possible for the society to quantify the value of the youths as future leaders and change agents.
He therefore said his government will stop at nothing to ensure that the well-being of the youths is taken into consideration at all times.
In a message, Thursday, to mark the 2021 International Youth Day, Governor Uzodimma acknowledged the communal spirit of the youths, particularly the Imo youths, who he noted, have continued to work for the overall benefit of the populace.
The governor reiterated the value his administration places on youths generally and youths in Imo in particular for which numerous youth empowerment schemes have been rolled out.
“I affirm the value we place on our youths, the future of our dear State and we would stop at nothing in ensuring your well-being is taken into consideration at all times,” Governor Uzodimma explained.
The governor reminded the youths that the theme of this year’s celebration which takes into account the gains in Agriculture and other Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) cannot be over-emphasized as government was poised to invest in those areas as a way of creating jobs for our teaming unemployed youths and making them self-reliant.
In congratulating the youths for being part of this year’s event, Governor Uzodimma urged them to shun all vices that cast a slur on them as leaders of tomorrow.
He listed the vices capable of destroying the future of the youths to include armed robbery, kidnapping, raping, corruption, banditry, terrorism, ritual killing, among others, and advised that they flee from them all.
Governor Uzodimma who noted that Imo youths have shown commendable demeanour by resisting attempts to be drafted into acts capable of portraying our State in bad light, advised them to always say no to wishes of those who do not mean well for Imo.
The governor reiterated his administration’s willingness to partner with the youths in all positive areas in the interest of the society, promising not to take their welfare for granted.
