Hope not lost on reinventing Nigeria, says Siasia
A new crop of leaders that will transform Nigeria into a nation of great possibilities has emerged, Chairman of the Nigerian Young Professionals Forum (NYPF), Moses Siasia believes.
He made the submission during a courtesy call on the Lamido Sabon Gari/President of the Youths Liaison Motivity (YLM), Abdulmalik Abubakar Gajam, in Abuja.
According to Siasia, the visit was in line with the vision of NYPF to mobilise a critical mass of young professionals across the federation to achieve purposeful national growth, development and rebirth.
He described Gajam as a young emerging leader in Nigeria, adding: “Someone who has shown exemplary leadership in absolute service to his community.”
Paying more tributes, the Bayelsa State native said the Lamido Sabon Gari had committed himself to impact humanity with humanitarian projects that directly lift people out of poverty in Zamfara State and the entire region in general.
“It is a feeling of joy for me as one who has always looked out for young people who are eager to improve the well-being of their communities, their local governments and their states. This visit has done a lot for me as I can see the giant strides of amazing developmental projects being executed by our brother, Abdulmalik Abubakar Gajam.
“This remains for me a mark of new leadership emerging from within Nigeria, a kind of leadership that is driven by the feeling of the need to serve and to improve the lives of ordinary people. This is what we need in Nigeria at this time, and this gives me hope that it is not over yet with the possibility of a renewed leadership in Nigeria,” he stated.
Siasia continued: “If Gajam can do these things he has done for his people, in his private capacity, one is left without any doubt that he will do more if and when he decides to consider providing his knowledge, skills and complete sense of leadership to the nation.”
On the issues of security, development and education in Northern Nigeria, the NYPF chairman said there was an urgent need to pay serious attention to the welfare and security of the people, pointing out that only by doing so that development can be restored.
He charged leaders to review the educational sector in the region, especially the Almajiri system, for betterment.
“You will agree with me, using the events of the most recent past as reference that we need to rethink our security structure so as to ensure that we have the resources to protect our citizens in Northern Nigeria. We cannot afford to turn a blind eye to this matter that has cost us so many lives, and has negatively affected the livelihood of many,” Siasia added.
Responding, Gajam thanked his visitor for identifying with him. He hailed Siasia for his interest in young professionals, assuring him he would not relent in his commitment to improving the lives of people within the state and across the country.
