Founder and Presiding Bishop of Living Faith Church (Winners Chapel) David Oyedepo has offered some much needed advice to the youths.
Speaking at a convocation held at the Landmark University in Omu Aran, Kwara State, he proffered a solution to the high number of unemployed young people in the country.
Oyedepo during the convocation tagged,”Release of pathfinders, Noble Set Class 2017,” advised the youths to stop depending on white collar jobs but to embrace creativity.
Referring to the university’s latest addition, a certificate and diploma in Agripreneurship, he also encouraged the youth to take advantage of this initiative.
“The idea (behind Agricpreneusrhip) is that we realised we need to be blunt with these youths that the (white collar) jobs they are looking for are no longer there. So by this initiative, we intend to raise a new army of entrepreneurs that will be agriculturally conscious. An Agric entrepreneur can never be a liability or burden, but an asset and to his country.
“No matter how highly sophisticated medical laboratory is, no single tablet produced from there however effective, can heal hunger. So until life ceases to be, food will continue to remain forever relevant.
“Highly possessive people are never known to be contributors. The less possessive we are as individuals, the more contributors we will be.
“This initiative is our modest contributions of encouraging Nigerians to take part in agricultural revolution. Interestingly, we do not need so much to start. You can begin a small garden in your home or at your backyard and from there begin to expand. We must all be a part of addressing food insecurity in Nigeria and Africa” he said.
