The Alhabibiyyah Islamic Society (AIS), an Islamic NGO, has underscored the need for continuous leadership training for Nigerian youths, to evolve a better and more prosperous nation.
The national Chief Imam of AIS, Sheikh Fuad Adeyemi, stated this on Tuesday in Abuja at the end of a two-day workshop on leadership training, organised by AIS in collaboration with Mambayya House, Aminu Kano Centre for Democratic Studies, Kano.
Adeyemi who stressed the importance of continuously mentoring the youth, said the growth of any nation was directly related to the quality of its youth population.
“At Al-Habibiyyah Islamic Society, we are trying to build systematic training of the young ones, so that they will be interested in leadership, so that at the end of the day, the entire nation will be better for it.
“The intention of this workshop is for these youths to take back what they have learnt to their localities and we can collectively have a systematic leadership process,” he said.
Earlier, Prof. Habu Muhammad, Director, Aminu Kano Centre for Democratic Studies, said the workshop was part of efforts to engage the youth productively.
“The workshop is of great significance in the sense that we have been able to train our youths on issues that will promote their active participation in governance,” he said.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the workshop, which had as it’s theme “inter-generational dialogue on youth for leadership role in Nigeria”, had participants from across the country.
The workshop, which had sessions on leadership skills, training for trainers and youth political participation, was supported by the MacArthur Foundation. (NAN) (www.nannews.ng)
