According to him, The essence of this program is to let the students know that whatever they do now, as a consequence later saying that whatever they are doing originate from their thought and it would go a long way to affect them.
He charged the students to keep away from the negative thoughts and learn how to keep good company and also know how to make use of social media because its negativity outweighed its positivity.
Speaking on the theme, he charged them to take their studies serious and also try to find out where their passion is so that they can build meaningful things on it, adding that one thing is passion and another thing is to develop that passion into results that can put food on your table. Said, “If your passion cannot put anything on the table, there is no need to engage yourself in it.
“Do not choose any course because your friends are studying or doing well in it. There is a need to study the course that would be useful to you in the future and that is why we are here today to make you understand when it comes to choosing your career path in the future. Whatever your mind is made upon, dedicate your time and energy to it so that you be perfect.”
He also encourage the students to start taking good food saying that not when they are old before they would start thinking about their health.
Whatever you do now would affect your health later meaning that there is a need to be careful what goes into their mouths such as drugs and the kind of food they eat and urged them not to engage in drug abuse and smoking or anything that might affect them later day in the life.
He called on the federal government to start teaching necessary skills to prepare them against tomorrow because there is a lot of difference between Schooling and education and that is the main reason people are passing through school to certificate but they lacked education and skills that would help them tomorrow.
