Honeywell urges more support for youth development
Managing Director of Honeywell Flour Mills Plc., Lanre Jaiyeola, has solicited private and public investments in activities that would promote youth development to keep them away from crimes and other social vices.
He also tasked youth to channel their skills and energy to ventures that will be productive to them and the society. This, he noted, will go a long way in solving social vices and make them have a direction to realize a dream by building a career.
Jaiyeola, who spoke at the closing ceremony of the Honeywell-sponsored youth based-Basketball competition at the Rowe Park, Yaba, Lagos, stressed the importance of investment in youth, being the leaders of tomorrow, to make them more productive.
Honeywell, according to him, would continue to focus its corporate social responsibility on activities that promote skill development among youth in realizing the importance of that age group to the nation’s socio-economic development.
“At Honeywell Flour Mills, we are a socially responsible organisation. We support good causes, especially those that have to do with children. The company will try to support any good cause within our available resources, laudable causes that can take our country forward, help to develop our children in the area of sports, in academics,” he said.
Besides, he said in efforts to make the society feel the company’s impacts, “we have made basketball a choice, not just to discover talents, but also to build talents. Beyond that, it is also to remove the youths from the streets, from social vices and make them have a direction to realize a dream by building a career”.
