The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi Ojaja II, on Thursday said Nigerian youths have what it takes to produce all goods and services the country needed to survive.
Ooni Ogunwusi expressed this at his Ile Oodua Palace, Ile-Ife, during the official launching of The Gifted Project, an initiative of Engage Diaspora Foundation, targeted at empowering gifted youths across the country.
The monarch Ooni explained that the youth entrepreneurs have displayed high level of ability and capabilities to shoulder the responsibility of technological inventions and innovations.
“All we need to do is to patronize and motivate these people to be able to take the good works to a greater height. I personally, I am a fan of materials and items made locally and that’s what I want all to imbibe towards the growth of our economy.” Ooni Ogunwusi noted
