Nigeria lacks role models to mentor youths – Clergy
The Regional Youths Pastor of the RCCG, Odun Emasealu, has attributed the lack of mentorship among Nigerian youths to absence of role models and pathfinders in the country.
Addressing the press, yesterday, in Abuja, ahead of the church’s annual programme tagged: ‘Abuja Shift Emergency, ’ Emasealu regretted that Nigerian youths have lost hope in life, due to depression.
He said the church initiated the programme to guide youths into meaningful future, as well as bridge the gap between past and present generations.
He said: “We all know depression is a product of loss of hope, and what makes someone to lose hope is the realisation that he/she is not making progress in life… Unfortunately, in our country now, we are losing role models and that is the objective of this programme. We intend raising people that can go to the market place and compete…”
Also Speaking, the RCCG Assistant General Overseer, Ezekiel Odeyemi disclosed that the programme would accommodate all Nigerian youths that are ready to key into it.
