Chairman of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum and Ekiti State Governor, Kayode Fayemi, has told Nigerian youths not to allow frustration becloud their hope in realising the Nigeria of their dreams by picking up a Canadian visa.
Fayemi stated that although there are a lot of frustrations that could propel such, there is a glass ceiling in Canada that is not in Nigeria.
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 appealed to the youth to work towards making Nigeria a better place as the belief for a better Nigeria is possible.
“At the risk of sounding immodest, that’s what got some of us into politics.
“We believe that another Nigeria is possible, a better Nigeria is possible and we should not stand by the sidelines in pushing for that Nigeria of our dreams. We are not there yet but that does not mean we will give up.
“Don’t succumb to despondency; there is a lot to hail in this country. There is a lot to frustrate you, a lot to want to make you give up and pick that visa and go to Canada.
“I know it is a popular destination – Canada – but you know what? There is also a glass ceiling in Canada. When you get to the top of it, you will now discover there is a glass ceiling there.
“This (Nigeria) is the place where there is no glass ceiling. Let us work towards making it a better place.”
