Churches have been enjoined to use their platforms to discover and nurture skills and talents in the youths to meet the present day needs of the society rather than leaving them to go astray.

The Executive Assistant to the Oyo state Governor on Administration, Pastor Ìdòwú Ogedengbe gave the charge while speaking with our correspondent in Ibadan.

The Cleric who berrated the rates at which churches lose skillful and talented youths to the uncultured world called on the churches across the nation to retain talented members and properly groom them for high productivity to profer lasting solutions to the challenges of the nation.

“Many great artists started from the church but later go astray because they could not find supports, assistance and necessary guidance. We need the church to recognise the unique skills of our young people, now we are having youths that are so talented in the field of drama, Artificial intelligence and Animations, those are skills that we need to encourage.”

“The church needs to be seen in encouraging our young people to pursue their dreams within the congregation. They don’t need to go to the world start looking for a platform. It’s a challenge to the church to start seeing that we are in a new generation and catch them young for good relevance”

Pastor Ogedengbe, noted that solutions to the current economic situation of the country transcend distribution of palliatives, saying development of solution driven innovations capable should be the prerogative of the government, corporate organisations and individuals to solve the current and future challenges of the nation.

Speaking on the Oyo State intervention on the federal government post subsidy removal of fuel subsidy, Pastor Ogedengbe stressed that the distribution of food packs as palliatives was to stabilise the people while other empowerment initiatives would be rolled out.
