Praise Akinlami, the CEO of Profitify Consulting in Abuja, Nigeria, passionately advocates for youth empowerment and leadership to drive meaningful change in the country. He emphasizes the urgent need for young Nigerians to take the lead in empowerment, governance, and other critical areas to catalyze progress and transformation.

“With a deep conviction, I believe that Nigeria will not witness substantial change unless its youth step up to lead in empowerment, governance, and other critical areas,” emphasizes Praise.

Nigeria, with its vast potential and youthful population, stands at a crossroads where the engagement and involvement of its youth are crucial for shaping its future trajectory. The empowerment of young Nigerians through education, skills development, and leadership opportunities is essential to harnessing the nation’s demographic dividend.

“The youths of Nigeria must awaken to their potential and take proactive steps towards effecting positive change in their communities and the nation at large,” asserts Praise.

Challenges such as unemployment, inadequate access to quality education, and limited opportunities for meaningful participation in governance have stifled the aspirations of many Nigerian youths. However, Praise envisions a future where empowered youth leaders drive innovation, advocate for social justice, and spearhead sustainable development initiatives.

“If the youths do not wake up and take the lead in empowerment, leadership, and other critical sectors, Nigeria’s trajectory will remain unchanged,” warns Praise.

Empowering Nigerian youths goes beyond rhetoric; it requires tangible investments in education, skills training, entrepreneurship, and civic engagement. By equipping young Nigerians with the tools and resources they need to thrive, the country can unlock its full potential and secure a brighter future for generations to come.

“The time for action is now. The youths of Nigeria must seize the moment, leverage their talents and creativity, and drive the change they wish to see in their communities,” urges Praise.

The empowerment and active participation of Nigerian youths are imperative for catalyzing societal transformation and sustainable development. Praise’s insight serves as a rallying call for young Nigerians to embrace leadership, embrace empowerment, and pave the way for a more inclusive and prosperous nation.
