Kumuyi warns young professionals against unpatriotic, dishonourable practices
The revered cleric, speaking at the maiden edition of Young Professionals Forum (YPF) of the Church’s Mega Summit, tagged: ‘Gaining the Edge’ in Lagos, said young people are important in God’s programme and plan, reason they must live a transformed life to make progress in their chosen career.
Represented by Lagos State Moderator of the Church, Pastor Kenneth Nwosu, Kumuyi said: “There is the problem of unemployment. There are only few white-collar jobs now available for the huge population of qualified young people. The need to become self-employed and create businesses and enterprises that eventually will generate jobs that will reduce unemployment becomes necessary.
“Hence, the Church felt the need to, as part of her social responsibility, organise the Skill Acquisition Programme (SAP) through its in-house YPF, as a vital capacity building event, to assist young people gain the required skills needed to enhance their employability and equally empower them in the quest for self-employment and become employers themselves.”
The keynote speaker, Head, Retail Business and Community Banking, First Bank Nigeria, Dr. Famuyiwa Abiodun, addressing the about 3,000 participants on ‘Winning in a Competitive World’, said they should remain focused to be top in life, noting that to win in life, attitude is everything.
The President, YPF, Mr. Daniel Bamigbayan, expressed optimism about a better Nigeria and Africa.
