The President of the Organization; Barrister Titilope Akogun urged the new Committee members to use the opportunity to prove that Kwara South has lots of talents and we are ripe to cause unprecedented change as young people in the region, while also urging Kwara South young people to focus more on entrepreneurship and reduce their involvement in political discussions or bickering that would not serve them any benefit in the present and in the future, urging them to either acquire digital skills and be prepared for employment opportunities that would come their way, or be entrepreneurs towards self sustenance and be security conscious in their respective localities.
