Young people have been taught to create objectives for themselves and work hard to achieve them.
The counsel was given at a seminar hosted in Ibadan by Mrs. Funmilayo Komolafe, founder of an humanitarian group “The Virtuous Girl Child Foundation.”
Approximately seven years ago, the foundation was established, according to Mrs. Komolafe, in order to inspire young people to be productive members of both their community and themselves.
Mrs Komolafe said her passion for the girl child came into being after she had a dream.
She said “in 2015 when I was serving my father land in Lokoja, my then pastor in a sermon told us to make a difference in society. There and then I started thinking of how to set goals. When I slept, I had a vision where I was talking to teenagers, and precisely on October 8, 2015, in Lokoja, I started visiting schools to talk to youths, especially the girl child.”
Similar to this, a youth instructor named Mrs. Grace Ojetunde pushed the young people attending the program to identify their life’s goals as early as possible and to never give up on them.
While adolescents still had strength, according to Mrs. Ojetunde, they should always use it for good and steer clear of social vices.
Education is necessary to stand before great individuals in life, according to one of the program conveners, Mrs. Helen Olayiwola, who spoke on the theme “The Impact of Education on the Upcoming Generation and Achieving Academic Goals via the Help of God.”
Mrs Olayiwola urged youths to be consistent in whatever goals they set for themselves.
Speaking on the theme “Achieving Sexual Purity Goals via the Help of God,” a youth counselor, Mrs. Adetutu Samson, advised youths against reading or watching pornographic material.
The program’s chief host, Prophetess Esther Adebayo of the Christ Followers Evangelical Church, Ilugushi Estate off Kala Road, advised the young people in attendance to always seek God’s guidance because only He could lead them through life.
Without objectives, according to Prophetess Adebayo, people would remain working in vain.
The awarding of supporters of the foundation, including Mrs. Dupe Tunde Abiodun, mother of the program convener, was the event’s high point.
Present at the event was the Deputy Directors News, FRCN, Ibadan National Station, Asiwaju S.T Abiodun and Mr Adewunmi Faniran.
The theme of this year’s Seminar is ‘Doing all things through Christ who strengthens.
