Rev’d Zaccheus Sanyaolu, Host Bishop, Rt. Rev’d Oladipo Timothy and Rev’d Ezekiel Ogunyombo, shortly after officiating at the 70th Anniversary of the Church, Abule Ijesha, Yaba, Lagos and Thanksgiving Service.

The Lead Pastor, Blueprint Church, Amuwo Odofin, Lagos, Okechuku Anyanwu has urged yovuths to equip themselves with necessary thoughts, ideas, skills and potentials that will help shape their desired future.

Anyanwu made the remarks during the Emerge conference organised by the church to educate the community on professionalism and job ethics. He explained that the aim was to equip youths with what they need to soar high.

He said: “We thought of how to give back to our society and came up with a knowledge-driven conference. The event was propelled by the need in society for knowledge and preparedness for the future. People are not so given to search for knowledge. If you look at the society, you will see that there is a deficiency in terms of how well people are prepared for the future.”


The cleric added that the next programme would be held on October 1, 2018.

The Director, Creative Studios, Osagie Ogunbor, who commended the programme said: “We are here to talk to the audience about interview etiquettes, how to behave and act in the professional world. The hope is that people actually learn how to set up their Curriculum Vitae (CV) and how to go about interviews.”

He urged government to integrate such training into school curriculum.
