The founder of the Christ Apostolic Church, Adamimogo Grace of Mercy Prayer Mountain Worldwide, Sam Alo, has said that youth empowerment and vocational skills acquisition should take center stage in governance.
According to a statement made available to Sunday PUNCH, Alo stated this after a match between his team, Adamimogo Football Club of Akure, and Nigeria Immigration Football Club of Ado Ekiti.
The cleric opined that the government alone could not meet the ever-increasing needs of society.
He said, “Government may not be able to do everything for us, but there are many ways we can contribute to the development of our people and communities.
“Youth empowerment through sports, scholarship, vocational training, and provision of working tools for those who had learnt one trade or the other will go a long way in augmenting the government’s social investment.”
Alo urged well-meaning Nigerians to invest more in social infrastructure, such as health facilities, blocks of classrooms, and the provision of libraries in communities to promote reading culture among young people.
The cleric also donated blocks of classrooms to Temidire Community High School, Temidire, Ekiti; and St. Benedict’s Catholic Nursery and Primary School, Ido Ekiti; among others.
Earlier, the chairman of the Ekiti State Council of Traditional Rulers, Olojudo of Ido, Oba Ayorinde Ilori-Faboro, applauded the cleric for his donation and commitment to human upliftment.
