A UK-trained management consultant, Dr Adejoke Adekanmbi-Akinseye, highlighted the need to empower young people and women to reach their full potential. Adekanmbi-Akinseye, who is the founder of the Aderoju Ayoade Adekanmbi Foundation, emphasized that young Nigerians are not lazy; what they needed instead was empowerment. The philanthropist said this during an interview with reporters on her desire to represent the federal constituency of Ibadan North East/South East in the House of Representatives in 2023. The researcher said: “I don’t believe that our young people are lazy as they used to say, they need to be encouraged. I will initiate ideas that will change their minds positively, after which I will introduce them to sports, agriculture, entrepreneurial skills or business. All of these will help disabuse their minds of “yahoo” activities. “I will use all of these strategies to discourage people from relying on the practice of stomach infrastructure, which has made so many people lazy. It is high time to teach people how to fish rather than giving them fish and encourage them to be lazy and unproductive.”I will use agriculture to change our narratives in the region. We will invest in training and research. This will go a long way in addressing the threat of poverty among the population. I will address and impact the skills of young people to enable them to function well. “Women need to be empowered to be able to speak out. There is a need to empower women and in doing so we empower the nation The researcher also highlighted the need for the government to implement the affirmative 35. She said: “My constituency members asked me to go and represent them in the House of Representatives during the proc hate dispenses politics. However, I have been involved in empowering people before now. I have been rooted in my community for 17 years. With all this, I consider myself the most qualified for the mission. Let the government implement the 35% claim”.
