Daily Trust - - DIGEST - By Si­mon Echewo­fun Sun­day

The Nige­rian youth has been tasked on stay­ing to make all the dif­fer­ence in the so­ci­ety through good deeds and en­vi­able lead­er­ship roles.

Pres­i­dent of the As­aphs of Ser­aph In­ter­na­tional Or­gan­i­sa­tion (ASIO), Prophet John­son Adeniyi Adeyemi and his col­league gave this charge in Abuja dur­ing the in­au­gu­ral re­vival of the Abuja Chap­ter of the or­gan­i­sa­tion.

Adeyemi who stressed on con­tent­ment said: “Our youth should start think­ing about pos­ter­ity, the here­after be­cause we will all give ac­count. Our youth should stay to make a dif­fer­ence.”

He cited some hu­man­i­tar­ian projects of ASIO, a plat­form of the Cheru­bim and Seraphim Move­ment Church of Su­rulere in La­gos State started by Di­as­po­ras in the US in 1998.

Adeyemi said ASIO part­ners with the Sal­va­tion Army, the Red Cross and other agen­cies through which as­sis­tance in aids are made to vic­tims of hur­ri­canes and other mishaps in the US.

“In Nige­ria, we have been to Modupeko­run Or­phan­age in La­gos, Old Peo­ples Home and the Pa­celli School for the Blind in La­gos. We gave them ma­te­ri­als that they needed to sup­port the blind,” he added.

Adeyemi also scolded politi­cians for not be­ing good role mod­els to youth.

Em­pha­siz­ing on the need to re­vive the high level of moral­ity once ex­hib­ited by Nige­ri­ans, Prophet Seun Bap­tist, a re­vival­ist and mem­ber of the or­gan­i­sa­tion in US said ASIO re­turned to Nige­ria to es­tab­lish chap­ters in La­gos, Ilorin, and in Abuja to con­nect with young ones
