Osun Deputy Governor Cautions Youths Against Social Vices



The Osun State Deputy Governor, Benedict Gboyega Alabi has enjoined Nigerian youths to be focused and shun all forms of social vices to build a better future.

He maintained that the greatest bane to nation’s economic and social greatness is absence of productive youths, adding that Nigeria needs vibrant and dedicated youths to grow.

Alabi made this known at a Thanksgiving Mass, in celebration of fifty years anniversary of his late father, Late PA. John Oyeyemi Alabi, held at Holy Cross Catholic Church, Ikire, on Sunday.

He added that youths empowerment and job creation remain one of the integral focus of the government in the state, asides the conscious efforts to optimally meet the needs of workers.

According to him, despite the limited resources accruing to the state, the government is working assiduously to build more physical infrastructure and human capital.

He however eulogised his late father for leaving behind a legacy of integrity and hardwork, which in his words had opened doors for him and his siblings.

“Our youths must be forthright and think outside the box for the purpose of contributing their quotas to the development of our nation and make it an enviable entity amongst the comity of nations.

“Young people must be conscious of the inherent danger in social vices, such as drug abuse, cultism, internet fraud among others and permanently shun it.

” It is obvious that Nigeria needs vibrant and productive youths to grow and advance at all fronts. This present trend of social anomalies among our youths is indeed alarming.

“That is why we are working tirelessly as a government to continue to support our teeming youths with array of economic interventions and programmes.

“Also, you can attest to our efforts towards making sure that workers in the state are happy and live better life”, he said.
