Plateau State youths have been called upon to actively participate in politics to foster the desired change the nation requires.
This call was made at the Maitama Sule Leadership Lecture Series held at ASUU secretariat in University of Jos, organized for the student wing of Coalition of Northern Groups Plateau State Chapter.
Speaking at the event, Dr Reuel Dakum of the department of Business Administration, University of Jos, said with the way the system of leadership is deteriorating in the country, the youths should not sit down and be blaming the (old) leaders but should blame themselves for not participating actively in politics.
“This programme is a very good initiative. With the way the system of leadership is deteriorating in the country, the youths should not sit down and be blaming the (old) leaders but should blame themselves for not participating actively in politics.”
Jamilu Aliyu of the national board of students for Northern Coalition Groups said they have decided to take the bull by its horns to ensure that they restore the past glory of the country.
“We decided to organize these lectures to mentor students on good leadership and to also to make them know the essence of leadership.
“This is Imperative so that the students who are in their youthful ages can engage themselves in politics since it is the foremost channel to holding political office in the country,” he said.
