The Chairman Balogun Ajikobi Community Development Association (BACDA), Eedris Jimoh Ajikobi, has urged the youth to disconnect themselves from hooliganism in order to have a prosperous future.
Ajikobi who made the disclosure during the 12th annual congress of the Ajikobi community at the weekend called on the youth to make education a priority adding that any community without education will be relegated.
According to him, youths should not be depressed with the economic situation of the country but must think positively on their future without waiting on government for support.
“Don’t wait for white collar jobs. There are a lot of things out there that youths can think of which could make them become their own boss and employer of labour,” he stressed.
Ajikobi tasked parents to be very vigilant when it comes to their children and to take very good care of them morally and educationally for a better future while also calling for combined efforts in curbing security challenges in the country.
“Everyone should be supportive of security men to fight crime in the state by given them necessary information to curb crime in the state,” Ajikobi submitted.
In a related development, an Islamic cleric, Sheikh Sulyman Faruq Onikijipa has charged Muslims to always remember that death is inevitable and that it can come to anyone at anytime.
Onikijipa stated this on Saturday during the second Sheikh Ahmad Abubakar Ikokoro’s memorial lecture at the family residence in Ilorin, the Kwara State capital.
He said, “There can never be former Alfa Ikokoro, he was Alfa when he was alive and so he remains even after his demise. We can always continue to learn from his legacies as human beings. Though he didn’t live up to 70 but his impact is evident.
Among dignitaries present at the lecture are: the Kwara State Grand Khadi, Justice Ola Abdulkadri, Chief Justice of the state, Durosinlohun Kawu, the 2015 Kwara State Deputy Governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Hon. Yinka Aluko and others.
