Youth leaders tasked on competence
By Josephine Oguntoyinbo
Youth and students leaders have been charged to always display competence and maturity at all times and also consult widely with stakeholders in line with the 21st century practice in order to get maximum results.
The Senior Special Assistant to the State Governor on Political Matters (South), Mr Andrew Ogunsakin gave the charge yesterday in Akure at the 11th inauguration of the executive council and Senate legislative arm of the National Association of Ondo State Students (NAOSS).
While congratulating the new students leaders for the peaceful election and inauguration, he charged them to be transparent and give members sense of belonging to move to greater height.
He assured the students that his office will always be open to them and prayed that God will grant them wisdom and understanding to excel in their new positions.
In his remarks, the Special Assistant to the state governor on youth and student affairs, Mr Banji Adewunmi recalled that the association held its 11th national convention last week which led to the emergence of the new leaders without government interference except in the area of security of lives and property.
He affirmed that the election was peaceful, free and fair which is a new era in the history of the association noting that government will continue to partner them for maximum result.
He assured the students that government will not allow them to be confrontational before giving them what is due to them.
He equally advised them to always be good ambassadors of the state anywhere they find themselves.
Responding, the newly sworn in President of the Association, Comrade Okikiowo Ayoade David who thanked the students for the confidence reposed in them assured them of commitment towards the emancipation of a globally recognised union which can compete favourably with others across the globe.
The President posited that welfare of members will always be priority noting that the executive will always give them what belong to them.
