Prepare For Leadership: Pastor Adeboye Urges Youths
General Overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church of God, (RCCG) Pastor Enoch Adeboye has challenged youths to prepare themselves for the responsibilities that comes with political leadership.
He spoke last Sunday at a special prayer and thanksgiving for students, teachers, lecturers, professors and their families by the RCCG National Headquarters Throne of Grace Parish at Redemption Way, Ebute Metta, Lagos.
He said that the Buhari administration has done the needful by assenting to the #NotToYoungToRule bill, pointing out the onus lies with youths to take advantage of the law and prepare themselves adequately for political leadership.
“You don’t wait for opportunity when they come; you prepare before opportunity comes so you can recognise it and manage it,” Adeboye stated. He noted that political leadership in the nation has peculiar challenges, which every credible youth interested in politics must be aware of.
He charged the youths to be ready to get involved, mobilise, organise and take their future and our nation’s destiny into their hands.
Pastor Adeboye, who was represented by the Assistant General Overseer, Personnel and Administration, Pastor Johnson Odesola, said Nigerians are in a hurry for development, which puts a lot of pressure on people in positions of authority to deliver on the social contracts they have with the people.
He stated for young people to take advantage of the new law in the political landscape, they must be exhibit enough political awareness and interest with a view to addressing the myriad of socio-economic challenges facing the country.
He stated though the socio-economic challenges facing Nigeria are more daunting, the current parlous state is not exclusive to Nigeria as other developing countries are grappling with their share of challenges.
