Her words: “If you are responsive to the plight of the people depicts a very high quality of leadership that is missing among our youths. So, in essence it is in those rural areas that offer you the opportunity to show your leadership qualities.

“It is only in those remote areas that you can think out of the box for the benefit of the people. These are areas that often lack portable water, and other social amenities. Seeing the condition of the people can give you the necessary push to come up with ideas on what to do for the benefit of mankind.

“The environment in Garki and Wuse will not offer you the opportunity to think of what to do because governments at all levels have provided all the amenities needed for the people. So, for you to get all the latitudes to hit the ground running is for you to serve in rural communities. Please, I urge you all not to work your ways to be redeployed”.
