From Oluseyi Dasilva Ilorin
The Executive Secretary, Oluwole foundation Pastor Moses Ademola Popoola has called on government at all levels to take youth empowerment as a means of fighting and preventing crime in the society.
Popoola who is also the presiding pastor of the Cherubim and Seraphim movement, number one, Ilorin made the call when Oluwole Foundation, an arm of Ifeloju band of the church embarked on empowerment to mark the 2019 father’s Day Celebration at the Cherubim and Seraphim Movement Church district headquarters in Ilorin Kwara state.
The Cleric who warned that neglect of the youth will eventually cost the well- to –dos and government more when the effect of the societal high rate of unemployment bounces back.
He said: “We will find ourselves in a very difficult situation in the future because of the over ten million of our population that are not working. It calls for concern”
“if you don’t take care of the less privilege people today, they become your enemy tomorrow, you are talking of kidnapping, you are talking of arm robbery, some of them are graduates who has no job.
The rich in the society should begin to take care of those people so that they don’t make them a target later in life, because they live in our street, they know the way we spend money, they will say so you know how to spend money we will come and take it from you; the rich should give attention and show care for these less priviledged. There are over a million graduates who don’t have jobs.”
Moses Ademola Popoola added that in all about fifty members of the church benefitted from the gesture of Oluwole Foundation making a total of three hundred and fifty beneficiaries reached since the inception of the programe seven years ago.
Earlier during the church service, Most Senior Apostle Prophet Akin Awoye, while delivering the sermon of the day admonished beneficiaries to make the best use of what is given to them to enable them get transmitted from poverty into plenty from being a taker to become givers.
Awoye also advised well to do members of the church to emulate the gesture of Oluwole Foundation who deemed it fit to extend hand of fellowship to the less privileged in the society by giving.
The cleric prayed for all fathers in the church that their roles will not be taken over by their wives adding that such is not the will of God for men.
One of the beneficiaries of the programme, Mrs Ruth Abegunde was full of gratitude to Oluwole Foundation and prayed that God continue to bless the Ifeloju band of the church for their good gesture.
