University of Benin final year student and national award winner of Most Popular Student in Nigeria of [NCCAWARDS2017] category, Emmanuel Oluwasayomi Ahmadu popularly known as Mr Voiceover, a multi-talented international Voice-Over Artiste, an upcoming Nollywood actor, a writer, a vast entrepreneur as well as an On-Air Personality, Campus Brand Ambassador and a humanitarian has restated his commitment towards contributing to the development of the country and improving the lives of the general citizens.
The student artiste made this known in Benin City during the launch of his special outreach to the less privileged members of the society tagged: ‘Mr Voiceover Mentorship Initiative’ which seeks to impact the lives of youths, empowering them with entrepreneurial skills and talent development schemes, geared towards nation building and development.
In a chat with our correspondence, Mr Voiceover disclosed his passion towards impacting the lives of youths and contributing his innovatisve and empowerment skills in promoting nation building as a patriotic Nigerian. He also revealed that the key to national development is to improve the educational pattern of Nigerian youths because the dynamism of the society has made a lot to change over the years.
According to him, “in a time when we have an influx of graduates without the required employment opportunities, it is better to identity what skills and vocational abilities one has at an early stage to be properly prepared for the future. For a nation to survive, it needs a lot of input from the youths. But unfortunately, the country has not proved to be a friendly enviroment to accommodate youthful innovations and creativity channeled towards improving lives”.
Therefore, this is why I made a pledge to contribute my own quota to the development of the youths by empowering them, thereby improving our ailing economy. For instace, my team has initiated a social media cross-platform app that is capable of bringing students across the globe together with possibility of providing job opportunities for them as well as other youths. I believe everyone of us has a role to play in nation building, he added.
Emmanuel further revealed his plan to commence a talent symposium, a programme where youths and students of Nigerian higher institutions would discover and develop their talents through mentorship by experts in their respective field of work, with a view to bringing out the best in the participants.
Reacting on the high rate of unemployment in the country, he noted that the government cannot provide job for everyone considering the population of the Nigerian citizenry, adding that there are other entrepreneurial skills and trade that could fetch money for the the teeming youths instead of the ‘white collar’ jobs that are rarely available in the society.Share this on WhatsApp
