Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Itodo Daniel Sule, Lokoja

The Sec­re­tary to the Kogi State Govern­ment Mrs Ayoade Fo­lashade Arike has ad­vised youths in the state to em­brace hard work and de­sist from the at­ti­tude of ‘get-rich-quick syn­drome’ which she noted had led many youths into com­mit­ting heinous crimes.

She gave the ad­vice yes­ter­day dur­ing an in­ter­ac­tion with mem­bers of Course 26 of the Na­tional De­fence Col­lege, who were on a study tour to the state to as­cer­tain the fac­tors mil­i­tat­ing against youth em­pow­er­ment in the state.

The SSG told the del­e­ga­tion that the present govern­ment has ini­ti­ated var­i­ous em­pow­er­ment pro­grammes es­pe­cially in the agri­cul­tural sec­tor to keep the youths gain­fully em­ployed.

The team leader, Com­modore Em­manuel Olatunji Beck­ley said the del­e­ga­tion was on a study tour to the state with fo­cus on “Youth Em­pow­er­ment and Im­pli­ca­tion for Na­tional Se­cu­rity”.
