Bishop David Oyedepo of Living Faith Church has offered some much needed advice to the youths. Speaking at a convocation, he proffered a solution to the high number of unemployed young people in the country.

The
convocation, which held at the Landmark University in Omu Aran, Kwara
State, was tagged: ‘Release of pathfinders, Noble Set Class 2017’.

Bishop
Oyedepo advised the youths to stop depending on white collar jobs. He
went on to challenge young people to be creative instead.

Referring
to the university’s latest addition, a certificate and diploma in
Agripreneurship, he also encouraged the youth to take advantage of this
initiative.
In his words, “The idea
(behind Agricpreneusrhip) is that we realised we need to be blunt with
these youths that the (white collar) jobs they are looking for are no
longer there. So by this initiative, we intend to raise a new army of
entrepreneurs that will be agriculturally conscious. An Agric
entrepreneur can never be a liability or burden, but an asset and to his
country.
“No matter how highly
sophisticated medical laboratory is, no single tablet produced from
there however effective, can heal hunger. So until life ceases to be,
food will continue to remain forever relevant.”

“Highly
possessive people are never known to be contributors. The less
possessive we are as individuals, the more contributors we will be.
“This
initiative is our modest contributions of encouraging Nigerians to take
part in agricultural revolution. Interestingly, we do not need so much
to start. You can begin a small garden in your home or at your backyard
and from there begin to expand. We must all be a part of addressing food
insecurity in Nigeria and Africa.”

Bishop
Oyedepo’s advice to youths comes after the latest report from the
National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) depicts just how terrible things
are.

According
to the “Unemployment/Under-employment Report for 4th Quarter of 2016’’,
unemployment has risen from 13.9 per cent to 14.2 per cent, this is
only between the 3rd quarter and 4th quarter of 2016.

In
the 3rd quarter, there were 27.12 million unemployed Nigerians. Within
this period and the 4th quarter, the number of the unemployed labour
force increased by 351,015 persons, making it 28.58M by the end of 2016.

With these scary numbers, I think we can all agree that Bishop’s advice is quite necessary.
In fact, his advice is the only thing we need to hear all year, until the youth start to act upon it.

L. A Prisoners Infect Themselves With Coronavirus To Get Early Release (VIDEO)

Published

By

A group of silly L.A area prison inmates were very eager to contract the dreaded coronavirus .

They attempted this because they believed that would trigger their ticket out of prison.

According to the L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva who made the startling revelation Monday, said about twenty-four (24) inmates at the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic attempted (and somewhat succeeded, apparently) to infect themselves way back in mid-April 2020.

The Sheriff revealed that their department saw an increase in spike in confirmed cases out of nowhere.

He said that when they investigated, they found a high number of inmates living in one block of the prison appeared to be deliberately trying to infect each other with COVID-19 any way they could from behind bars.

When Alex Villanueva played the surveillance footages he and his team combed through carefully , and it showed several inmates hanging out in a common area and passing around what Alex described as a hot cup of water, as well as one face mask they’d each put on all in hopes of getting sympathy from a judge to spring them from the facility and let them go home.

But it turns out, their little ploy worked but, only halfway.

Villanueva reported that 21 of the inmates (out of 50 in the block) caught the ‘Coronavirus.

“What they won’t catch is a break” said the Sheriff.

The Buhari administration has been known for enforcing the Nigerian people to patronize Nigerian made goods though without much strategy to make life easier while this transition to economic growth is enforced. Many Nigerians have tagged it a harsh move that is insensitive and inhumane but moreso, Reno Omokri has singled out signals of hypocrisy in the President of Nigeria by outlining certain traits of family moves of the President that shows that he(Buhari) as the No.1 citizen has no regards for anything made in Nigeria but yet wants other Nigerians to embrace Nigerian made goods.

Reno Omokri ‘s tweet reads:

His kids schooled in England. His wife just returned from a 3 month UK stay. His daughter gave birth to his grandchild in Spain (made in Spain), yet
@MBuhari
