Osinbajo support group distributes educational materials to students

By Funmilayo Adeyemi

A group promoting the leadership virtues of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on Monday began distributing educational materials to students in public high schools in some states of the federation.

The group’s leader, the Osinbajo Grassroots Organization (OGO), Mr. Sylvanus Ojo, said in a statement issued in Abuja that the exercise was also used to commemorate Nigeria‘s Independence Day celebration in 2021.

The celebration took place on October 1.

Ojo said that OGO distributed educational materials to students at the government secondary school, Guruku, Mararaba and community secondary school, Suleja in Nasarawa and Niger states, respectively, to kick off the program.

He added that the delay was a result of schools being on vacation during the celebration.

He said OGO decided to celebrate the nation’s independence with young citizens by propagating Osinbajo’s exemplary attributes manifested in his love for education and passion for young people.

The OGO chief noted that the group wanted young citizens to assimilate Osinbajo’s leadership qualities to prepare them to become responsible and patriotic leaders in the future.

He stressed that young citizens need to be guided early in life to adopt excellent qualities derived from mentoring to ensure a better future.

“We believe these young people will one day control the leadership space. It is important to show them the beauty of the patriotism, loyalty, dedication, humility, inclusiveness and tolerance that the Vice President represents.

“If we miss that, then we have lost the opportunity to rightly prepare a generation of successors who will lead this nation after the current groups of leaders may have left the scene.

“We need to think about the prosperity of our nation alongside the quality of the generations of its leaders. And it has to start now, ” Ojo said.

Addressing the students of the government secondary school, Mararaba, one of the organizers, Mr. Akin Makanjuola, urged them to imitate the vice president to become good citizens.

“If you imbue yourself with the qualities of Professor Osinbajo, you will become good citizens. We are here to share these ideas with you, to galvanize you for a better future, ” he said.

In his remarks, the deputy principal of the school, MA Adams advised the students to use these materials well and also reach the Osinbajo level.

A secondary II student at the school, Paul Abang, won a cash prize for his understanding of certain qualities of the vice president.

He said he aspires to be like Osinbajo and is committed to instilling his qualities and exercising discipline at all times.

“I will always imbue myself with the qualities of Professor Yemi Osinbajo. I think I need to be disciplined wherever I find myself inside and out, ”he said.

Another student, Ahmed Fatimah said: “We would like to thank the vice president for the privilege of his support group who contacted us and let us know more about him.

At Suleja Community High School, a junior high school student Princess Igwe also returned home with a cash prize.

“I will use the books given for my notes and also to always remember my vice president. God bless him, ”she said.

The school’s deputy principal, Ms. Amina Mohammed, praised OGO for raising awareness and pledged that the school will always motivate students to become good citizens.
