Admin Just Event Online TV
September 13 2020 will be an evergreen in the lives of Kwara youths as the CEO of Sobi FM and former kwara state gubernatorial aspirant Alhaji Lukman Mustapha hosted an interactive and mentorship session with the young and brightest minds of the state.
The mini-event which was held at Sydney Restaurant in Ilorin the kwara state capital, gathered creme de la creme in all spheres of life – students, academics, entertainers, cinematographers, agriprenuers, IT professionals, online media practitioners among others.
Speaking at the historic gathering, Mallam Mustapha said, “I had the privilege of hanging out with no fewer than 80 vibrant, enterprising, highly cerebra and intellectually mobile selected young Kwarans yesterday (Sunday), the ambiance was electrifying.”
“It was initially meant to create a platform for our teaming youth to interact, network, and above all get the needed push, it, however, ended up opening my eyes to the abundance of untapped goldmine and economic potentials which ironically is not buried beneath the earth, but rather it lays idle on the surface.”
” I believe very sincerely that if what I saw in those young Kwarans is what we reflect as a people, there is the great hope of a better future for Kwara state.”
“The attendees cut across all spheres of life from students, academics, entertainers, cinematographers, agriprenuers, tech guys, online media practitioners among others.”
“Surprisingly, as I learned during the interaction, that it was arguably the first time such a gathering will bring them all together in that kind of convivial atmosphere, I then wonder what could have been, had there been a platform to genuinely harmonize, harvest, polish and unleash their individual and collective potentials, filled with positive adrenaline.”
” I understand, from our interactions that a number of them struggling to thrive in their area of interest are confronted with several challenges, which to me, are not peculiar to Kwara youths and if we allow such challenge(s) to weigh us down, it is not real but amounts to mere ‘excuse’; perhaps, challenges are those critical preconditions for sustainable success and greatness.”
” I encourage them all to do a soul search and think about extending our horizons to the global front. We must think beyond Ilorin, Kwara state, of Nigeria, the urge to be a global competitor will inspire us to offer values that are not only outstanding on the local front but comparatively on the same pedestal or better off values accessible elsewhere.”
“This cannot be achieved without the necessary information, skills, mentorship, support, and collaborations.”
He further declared that “On my part, I have vowed to henceforth at intervals hangout, engage, mentor, encourage, and push the Kwara youth to succeed in my own little way.”
“In the next couple of weeks, my team and I will come up with strategic and realistic steps to concretize the takeaways from the historic and unforgettable hangout.”
