A Youth Corps member serving in Gombe State, Stephen Angulu,  has won this year’s National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) essay competition, organised by the Bible Society of Nigeria (BSN) penultimate Thursday in Lagos.
He beat five others to pick the prize which included a laptop. The others were Joshua Tamunosiki, who came second; Ogagaoghene Eruteya, third; Jonathan Achile, fourth; andApeiker Iorsoo, fifth. Toyin Moyosore came sixth.
Ironically, Angulu spoke first on the contest’s theme: Recycling leadership: an antithetical approach to your development and Nigeria’s future.
He set the tone for the day, which other contestants either followed or harped on.
He said youths, who constituted a greater percentage of the nation’s population, were vital to national development, claiming that the elders had failed.
Angulu said what the nation had experienced was the recycling of leaders, saying that this was an abuse of a normal process that should have boosted growth. He listed the disadvantages of recycling as non-continuity, indispensability and inability to hand over to a successor.
He said: “We recycle leaders and bring a gap between youths and leaders, adding that as a result, youths are not given a chance to contribute to nation building.”
Angulu, who cited various Biblical verses to buttress his point, said youths who fear God, should be given a chance to participate in governance as they would do better than those who do not.
Other contestants, who harped on the usefulness of youths to national growth, also did justice to the theme. But Angulu took the shine off them, especially as they kept referring to his submission. The panelists might have noted this.
The Chairman, Pastor Charles Iko-Abasi, advised the youth to sharpen their skills and prepare themselves for leadership positions that they clamoured for.
