For meaningful development to take place in any society, youths need to be actively involved in developmental activities. In their bid to contribute their quota to community development, Youths in Community, Ogun Senatorial District has come together to deliberate how to impact more lives in their respective Area Community Development Committees ( ACDCs).
The bimestrial rotational meeting, which was held on Friday, 6th of March, 2020 at Ashimolowo, Ofada was hosted by The Youth in Community, Obafemi Owode Zonal Community Development Committee (OOZCDC).
The Youth Representative, Obafemi Owode Zonal CDC, Comrade Adejumo Adeshina in his welcome address admonished the youths to always attend meetings saying opportunities can come up at any time and is only those that attend the meeting that will be recognized. He also stated the project the youth has done so far this year. “We have not done much this year but we have empowered 22 youths on agricultural training. We believe this will lift the beneficiaries out of poverty and reduce unemployment. The training lasted for 5 days and we look forward to having 6 different empowerment programs every year. Adeshina added.”
The Senatorial Youth Representative, Comrade Tijani Kazeem while responding to the welcome address commended the Zonal Youth Rep, Comrade Adeshina in particular and his crew in general for a well-done job.
