 Embrace Truth, Says Mrs Ambode To Youths

Wife of Lagos State Governor Mrs Bolanle Ambode, has urged Nigerians to embrace truth in all their dealings.
The charged was made during the 2016 Musical Youth Fiesta Initiative (MYFI) at the Expo Centre, Eko Hotel Lagos.
With “The Truth” as theme for this year’s edition, Mrs Ambode enjoined youths to imbibe the virtue, saying its embrace would lead to economic and religious empowerment. “Many of the problems plaguing our nations could be attributable to the absence of “truth” which makes the theme for this event very appropriate and timely. Truth, on absolute term, breaks the shackles of disease, ignorance, superstition and poverty. Absolute honesty would guarantee your success and make you stand before kings and not mean men,” she said.
The yearly music concerts, which was organised by Senator Oluremi Tinubu for children and young adults from across the state, featured music, songs and drama ministrations from different churches in the state. Among other dignitaries was the wife of Osun State governor, Mrs Sherifat Aregbesola.
Speaking on this year’s theme, Senator Tinubu said: “The theme “The Truth” is a peculiar one, especially at a time when our youths are confronted with so many challenges due to advancement in technology. The battle is no longer the fight between ‘good and evil’ but ‘the truth and the lie’.”
She also enjoined the young to imbibe virtues that impact positively on their development and that of society.
MYFI Organising Committee Chairman, Jide Sanwo-Olu, the vision of the concert is to bring children and young adult together around the festive season, and give them the opportunity to enjoy quality Christian music and songs; be inspired, thankful to God and dream of a brighter future.
“I believe that life and success of nations and their bright future lies in the hands of the generation of today. If the youth of today have strong values, the best education, good health, right priorities and full sincerity, then we can say that the future is bright,” he said.
The event also saw to the graduation of teenagers from the Musical Youth Fiesta Initiative Leadership Academy. The academy targets girls between the age 13 to 18, when you can mould them. Senator Tinubu, along with other mentors, teaches and schools the girls on various areas – the word of God, ethos, ethics and etiquette.
