A Senior Lecturer in the Department of Philosophy, University of Lagos Professor Douglas Anele has advised the federal government to invest more in education, job creation and every aspect that will make the youths excel in Nigeria.
Anene said this at the Mental Wellness conference and book launch on Unbroken channeling the power of the mind organized by John Shaibu Consulting held in Lagos.
He said that the future of this country does not lies in crude oil, exploring mineral resources but in motivating the youths so that they can unleash their creative potentials and they will never be the same again.
The event tagged “Youth Staying Unbroken; Thriving in the Nigeria economy” brought together top executives, civil society groups students from 18 universities across the country.
The book has 270 pages and seven chapter which cut across leadership, self development and good governance.
He said that it is lamentable that successive administration have not paid so much attention in mobilizing youths for economic and social transformation.
“Our politicians are busy chasing shadows acquiring wealth they do not need and Nigerian youths are left to feed for themselves.”
Anele noted the moral ecological compass of Nigeria is highly polluted especially those in leadership position as cutting corners, and nepotism have characterize the system.
He opined that Nigeria youths are hardworking, ingenuous, resilience and are willing to defy the odds to succeed but need the right support systems to fly.
