As way of honouring and commending the Senate President for his unwavering commitment to the progress of Nigeria through quality legislation, Nigerian Youth and Middle -Aged Citizens under the aegis of Rising-Up for a United Nigeria (RUN) have concluded plans to honour Senator Godswill Akpabio in Abuja.
The Godswill Akpabio Entrepreneurship and Leadership Initiative which is a modest way of appreciating his people and youth centred leadership style will be unveiled at the 3rd Godswill Akpabio Leadership and Youth Mentorship Lecture.
In a communique signed by leaders of youth organisations after its meeting and made available to journalists by the National Convener of RUN, Amb. Solomon Adodo in Abuja, a copy of which was seen by our correspondent, the group expressed confidence in the leadership style of the Senate President and recounted several dividends of democracy that his stewardship has brought to Nigerians especially the youth.
According to the communique, “the Senator Godswill Akpabio is not new to the corridors of power. His political career has been marked by a consistent inclination to positive dividends both in human capital and infrastructural development. In unveiling the Entrepreneurship and Leadership Initiative, we are setting a legacy in his name which is in tandem with his political and leadership philosophy for the Nigerian youth. This is just the little we can do to spur him to greater service and stewardship”.
While regretting the inability to host the third Godswill Akpabio Leadership and Youth Mentorship Lecture as planned for the ninth of December, the group revealed that, the lecture will take place unfailingly in February, 2024 at the Thisday Dome and “enjoined Nigerian youths and lovers of democracy to make out time to attend as speakers across the world be making insightful presentations on political leadership and youth mentorship”. Other youth leaders who signed the communique include Comr. Olamide Odumosu, National Coordinator, Patriotic Nigeria Youth Forum; Ms Eucharia Orji, Young Female Professionals and Entrepreneurs; Hon. Joseph Addi, Civil Society and Youth Groups Initiative; Comr. Emmanuel Adenigbagbe of Youth and Middle-aged Citizens Forum; Comr. Joseph Ovie of Southsouth Youth Democratic Front; Alh.
