Nigerian youths need mentorship – Kaduna monarch

The Emir of Zazzau, Ahmad Bamali, has said Nigeria needs leaders that will groom the young ones to be responsibile future leaders of the country.

The emir made this known at a Women Conference organised by the Women Models and Mentors Foundation.

The theme of the event is, ‘The Right to participate’.

He said, ”What we are lacking today is mentorship. You don’t have to be a professor to mentor people.

“We should try as much as possible to impact knowledge to those behind us, especially those that require some tutelage and technical know how.

“Entrepreneurship is very key. I am passionate about it, especially, when it is an issue that relates to women.

“I am one of those blessed people that have girls as my children. I have four girls and a boy, so I can say I am a father of girls.

“We are encouraging young girls to go into entrepreneurship, especially those graduating from Islamic schools. We always tell them to combine the two education; western and Islamic education.

“We should always try and encourage the young ones, especially women.”

In her welcome address, the WMM president, Bilkisu Ibrahim, said women are faced with greater barriers than men in social, political and economic spheres of lives.
