Dear Young Folks (Series 5) “Tomorrow’s Leaders: Balancing Present Gratification with Future Consequences”

Dear Young Folks,

The emerging leaders of tomorrow wield both the promise of progress and the peril of shortsightedness, as they grapple with the temptation to prioritize immediate rewards over long-term sustainability. This delicate balance between present indulgence and future responsibility echoes throughout your actions and inactions, revealing a concerning resemblance to the traits of certain political figures.

In the pursuit of effecting meaningful social change, I remain steadfast in my commitment to upholding honor as the cornerstone of ethical conduct. Guided by the understanding that integrity is the hallmark of superior individuals, I am unwavering in my efforts to carefully deliberate my words and engagements across social media platforms.

It is disheartening to observe the fervent defense of governmental actions and policies by many young individuals, often driven by personal biases and emotional attachments. While it may be tempting to distance ourselves from the influence of politicians, we must acknowledge that our very existence is intricately intertwined with the policies they enact.

Today, I am compelled to address the insidious campaign aimed at suppressing certain news stories, preventing their dissemination on platforms more prominent than my own. This concerted effort to control the narrative reflects a troubling disregard for transparency and accountability within the administration, threatening to erode public trust and perpetuate misinformation.

I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the publishers of Whatsapp Ibadan, Ibadan Elite Broadcasters, Ibadan Lawa, Industreet Blogs Ibadan PR, and 9ja Connect for their invaluable collaborations. Through these partnerships, we have facilitated numerous engagements that have catalyzed prompt government action on various occasions. Equally deserving of commendation are the government officials who have received our feedback with openness and responded with a level of responsiveness and accountability that is commendable.

Dear fellow folks alike, we bear a responsibility not only to our present selves but also to the generations yet to come. It is on this foundation that I seek your support to sustain our efforts in driving meaningful change, recognizing the pivotal role that government policies play in shaping the future for those who will follow in our footsteps.

See you all next week.
