Alhaji Muhammad Abubakar Ibn Grema, Emir of Tikau, Nangere Local Government Area of Yobe State, has advised youths in the country to embrace Western and Quranic education and entrepreneurship skills to contribute meaningfully to national development.
The monarch gave the advice after launching of Tikau Emirate Council 2017 Zakkat and Waqaf donations held at his palace.
“Most youths can become great if they pursue their career with proper planning, passion and focus,” the emir said.
He asked wealthy individuals in the society to assist the less-privileged to cushion the current economic recession in the country.
The first class traditional ruler enjoined the youths to always exhibit good conduct and desist from acts that would hamper their progress in life.
The royal father, who noted that no nation could develop without functional and ambitious youths, urged Nigerian youths to exploit their talents for the social, economic and political development of the country.
The monarch urged them to develop positive attitude to life so that they could grow to become responsible leaders, fathers and guardians of tomorrow.
He further advised the youth not to be instruments of division, selfishness and mayhem in the society.
According to him, the 2017 Emirate's committee on Zakat and Waqaf realized N2,116,500 with 271 bags of grain and one cow.
