In his remarks, Pastor Leke Adeboye, chairman of the Foundation’s board, emphasised the significance of nurturing young leaders. He stated, “The children of today are the leaders of tomorrow. Our goal was to provide these young minds with the tools they need to dream more, learn more, do more, and become more. Leadership is about inspiring and empowering others, and we are committed to fostering this spirit in our children.”

Jolayemi captivated the audience with her insights on leadership, innovation, and perseverance. She remarked, ” Leadership is a personal ability before it becomes something you do in relation to others. Leadership is your personal ability to become a person of importance, significance and achievement”. She further emphasised the importance of character building, communication, good people skills, and self-discipline as keys to becoming a good leader who will impact nations.

 

During the event, Olawale Olatujoye, the programs manager of the Foundation, delivered a compelling speech on the importance of introducing and educating young people on leadership. Olatujoye stated, “In a world that is constantly evolving, it is essential that we equip our young people with the skills and knowledge they need to lead. By fostering leadership qualities in our youth, we are not just preparing them for future roles; we are empowering them to make a difference in their communities today and be equipped to grow and become solutions to the challenges of our nation.

An interactive session between the participating students and the panel of speakers was another highlight of the assembly. This session provided a platform for students to engage directly with the speakers, ask questions, and discuss their ideas about leadership. This dialogue not only enhanced the students’ understanding of leadership concepts but also encouraged them to think critically and guided them on navigating the paths to attaining their goals.
