YOUTH UNDERPINNED THE FIRST INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION IN EUROPE AND AMERICA – CONVOCATION LECTURER, PROF. ORAMAH
The youth Underpinned the first industrial revolution in Europe and America and were the engines behind the emergence of the Asian Tigers.
These were the comments of the 14th Convocation lecturer, Prof. Benedict Oramah while delivering his lecture on the topic: “Unleashing the Power of the Youth”.
Prof. Oramah stated that Africa’s youth serve as the key that will unlock the door to Africa’s transition to a developed continent and we cannot afford to complain about the dangers of youth bulge when scant opportunity have been created for them towards going into a frenzy of positive action.
Prof. Oramah posited that for African youth to do for the continent what their contemporaries did for Europe, the US and for South East Asia, the government and indeed all stakeholders involved in human resource management have to create the opportunities and the right environment for them to go into an orgy of positive action.
