Ambode’s wife – Utilise Your Holiday for Productive Activities

Wife of the Governor of Lagos State, Mrs Bolanle Ambode, on Monday asked youths to engage in activities that will ensure meaningful and productive use of their time during the summer break.

She spoke at the opening of ‘Activate Youth Camp’, a seven-day free residential camping for about 200 youths, organised by Annie’s Place, a non-governmental organisation, at Reagan Memorial School, Sabo, Yaba.

The governor’s wife, who said the cornerstone of successful living was hard work, dedication, strength of character and the fear of God, urged participants to see the camp as unique, as its central objective was to mould youths into useful and productive adults.

She said the essence of the programme was to discover and develop the hidden talents in youths and prepare them for the future.

“Therefore, the strategy is to challenge you physically and mentally through rigorous training during the camping and to put you through experiences that would make you self-believing and self-respecting with a positive attitude to life.

“So, feel free to pursue your respective passions, whatever skills and vocations — cooking, weaving, baking, hat making, handcrafts, dress making, hairdressing or indeed any other,” she said.

Ambode commended the conveners for addressing the challenge of youth engagement, stressing that it remained a major catalyst for national development.

She noted that no nation was assured of a secured and prosperous future when its youths were without character and focus.
