Remi Tinubu Mobilises Youths To Believe In Nigeria, Selves

First Lady, Remi Tinubu has said “purpose, passion, determination and resilience” are necessary for success in life.
She stated this at an event tagged: “Honouring the Youth of Our Nation” with the theme: “Becoming: Pathway to Success” in commemoration of the first anniversary of President Bola Tinubu’s administration, held at the State House Conference Centre, Abuja.

Senator Tinubu, a statement issued by her media aide, Busola Kukoyi, stressed the importance of education to attain great heights and promised that her pet project, the Renewed Hope Initiative (RHI will work towards complementing the efforts of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu in education, agriculture, social investment and economic empowerment.

She said, “Stay in school, finish school because we are a developing country. When you stay and finish your education, you will have more options.”

“We will continue to do our best to provide an enabling environment to foster and support you as active participants in national development and in re-writing Nigeria’s story for good.

“I urge us to keep believing in Nigeria, by the special grace of God, we will witness the rebirth of a new nation that will take its rightful place among the comity of nations.”

She described Tunde Onakoya, the chess master, who participated in a panel discussion, as a beacon of light in the realm of social impact, who captured hearts with his unwavering dedication to empowering vulnerable children through the strategic game of chess.

She said his crowning glory came as he etched his name in history by breaking the Guinness World Record (GWR) for the longest marathon chess game, channelling the proceeds towards noble charitable causes.

Mrs Tinubu also applauded another of the panelists, 2nd Lieutenant Princess Oluchukwu Owowoh, whose journey in the military, she said is awe-inspiring, a trailblazer who shattered barriers and ascended to become the first Nigerian woman commissioned from the esteemed Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, United Kingdom (UK).

She said Owowoh’s triumph serves was an inspiration for young girls everywhere, showcasing that merit and dedication transcend gender boundaries, while embodying a rare blend of elegance and intellect.
For Hauwa Shakir, a lawyer, content creator, serial entrepreneur and the CEO of KuluAbuja, the first lady hailed the budding fashion designer whose creative brilliance and unwavering passion illuminated the narrative.

For Iyinoluwa Aboyeji, the founding partner of Future Africa, the first lady hailed him for being among the tech visionaries and innovators who have revolutionised the African innovation and investment landscape, leaving an indelible imprint on the country and the continent at large.

She hailed the panelists for their relentless pursuit of excellence and groundbreaking contributions, standing as pillars of progress, shaping a brighter future for generations to come.

Mrs Tinubu seized the opportunity to remind the youths of the ongoing #ONE NIGERIA/Unity Fabric competition.

She said the competition is open to all Nigerians within and outside the shores of the country between the ages of 15 to 25 years old.

“The #ONE NIGERIA/unity fabric has N25 million as the star prize. We are going to be showcasing that by October 1 by the grace of God. We have very few entries in a country of 200 million people, we have less than 40 entries. Are you going to try? It is better than social media,” she said.

In her welcome address earlier, the minister of youth, Dr Jamila Bio-Ibrahim, said the event was designed to recognise and celebrate the achievements of youths in their various fields of endeavours.

She said Nigerian youths are not just the leaders of the future but are making impact right now, assuring them that the Tinubu administration is committed to supporting them all the way.

While commending the first lady for her commitment to the youths, she advised them to continue to strive for excellence, smashing boundaries towards a future filled with hope, unity and progress.
