Emefiele Charges Youths To Become Resourceful Entrepreneurs
Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, Mr. Godwin Emefiele has admonished Nigerian youths to stop depending on government or white collar jobs for their livelihood, but should think of how to become resourceful entrepreneurs.
Emefiele made the admonishment at a lecture to mark the 47thConvocation of the prestigious University of Nigeria Nsukka, Enugu State, south eastern Nigeria.
Emefiele noted that the agenda of entrepreneurial development was to nurture a cream of innovative and wealth creating men and women who are set to become pacesetters and the ‘next-big-thing’ in the present globally competitive space.
Speaking on the topic: “A mind set for Succeeding in Today’s Nigeria”, the CBN Boss pointed out that Nigeria has limitless opportunities for anyone who wishes to become wealthy, regardless of complaints of the lack of job opportunities.
He urged Nigerian graduates to change their mentality.
“You just have to go out there and find it”, he charged them.
“Renowned entrepreneurs and innovators did not wait for their government to give them jobs, they created jobs for the economy. It may surprise you to note that some of the wealthiest persons on earth are entrepreneurs who began with modest start-ups”, he said.
