Ekiti State Governor, Kayode Fayemi, has advised Nigerian youths to shun Canada and realize the Nigeria of their dream amid the #EndSARS frustration.
Fayemi said though the country was passing through many challenges at the moment, youths should not “give up and pick that visa and go to Canada” because Canada has a “glass ceiling”.
Fayemi spoke on Saturday at the 2021 edition of The Platform, an annual conference organised by the Senior Pastor of the Covenant Christian Centre, Lagos, Poju Oyemade.
He said though he won’t “discourage anyone who wants to leave this country in search of greener pastures, education, health care and what have you” because he once “lived outside this country for 15 years” to study and work. The ex-senator, however, urged youths to stay in the country and organise for political control rather than agonise or resort to violence.
Fayemi said, “What I am saying in essence is that we have a duty of mentorship to younger people to say to them that sometimes, you don’t always get what you push for but that not necessarily mean that is the end of the road, you keep knocking on the door, banging it and inevitably, it will open. How long it will open for will depend on your capacity to organise
