The Chief Whip of Osun State House of Assembly, Hon Tunde Olatunji, on Minday said the dearth of motivation and good mentoring for young people has continued to promote delinquencies among youths in Nigeria.
He spoke at the unveiling of the initiative tagged, “Tunde Goes to Teach” programme at Anglican Middle School, Edun-abon, Ife-North Local Government, Area of Osun state.
Olatunji, who later took the students mathematics,urged them to take the subject serious, adding that no matter their future course of study, it would require the subject.
