Imo youth encouraged to maintain hard work

06 January 2016, 19:32

Abuja - Deputy Governor of Imo State, Prince Eze Madumere, has urged youth to embrace hard work and sporting activities so as to enhance their success.

Presenting an address on behalf of the deputy governor, his spokesperson, Anyanwu Kelechi, charged the youth to adopt the idea of learning skills despite their courses of study so as to equip themselves against unemployment.

Speaking at an event in Mbaitoli Local Government of the state, Kelechi said the deputy governor also encouraged them to take part in  sporting activities, which he said brought about unity, cohesion and progress in the community and in the society at large.

He averred that those who have requisite skills in sporting activities could make a career in it.

Madumere’s representative also observed that sports helped people maintain healthy lifestyles.

“This is especially so for the youth who should be seen as vibrant and energetic,” Kelechi added.

He recalled the importance of sports and how it has benefitted the community by creating harmonious relationship among the youth and indigenes.

Kelechi therefore warned youths against joining gangs.

“This may condemnably lead youth into crimes and social vices that may bring them to ruin,” he said.
