The king also stated that the present difficulty is only momentary.

The monarch revealed this on Thursday during his speech at the inaugural Pinnacle Leadership and Entrepreneurship Summit in Osogbo.

The monarch, who was conferred with the Grand Patron of the group, said his palace has been supporting youths across the state, calling on young people to build a good network of contacts that will help shape their lives.

“Your contact is your richness. I have been supporting young people and will continue to do so. I love what these young people are doing, and I promise to continue to support them. Human capital development is what I believe so much in, and I have dedicated my life to it.

Nation-building isn’t more than this: young people coming together, formulating policies, bringing out business ideas, and, most importantly, empowering their peers and colleagues. This is laudable. It’s worthy of emulation. Our country needs them to not fight each other. They should remain steadfast and focused; avoid politics that can divide them; they are better together as non-partisans, so individually they can play politics.”

The monarch advised Nigerian youth to be patient, as the current tough time will disappear.

“My advice to Nigerians is that we should keep faith in our country. This is when we need the better part of our patriotic mind and conscience. We are going through a challenge, but we shall overcome it.”

During the panel session, Adewumi Adeyemi, a member of the Osun State House of Assembly; Adedayo Oderinu, a broadcaster; and Ayotunde Jimoh, a teacher and a real estate consultant,.

The panelists called on the youths to build capacity and see education as a very important tool for success.

In his lecture, former Chief Whip of the Osun State House of Assembly, Tunde Olatunji, said the opportunities are abundant, calling on young people to be on the lookout for opportunities.

Olatunji said, “There are a lot of opportunities abounding here. From agriculture to technology and others. But young people just need to understand what those opportunities are and plan accordingly. The population of Osun State alone is a huge opportunity. Do you know that a liter of palm oil is more expensive than a liter of petrol or diesel? But I can say it’s going to be more expensive than that as time goes on.”

Young entrepreneurs pitched their business ideas, and seven of them went home with support grants and equipment.

Speaking on behalf of the group, Abdulmalik Afolabi advised the winners of the grant and equipment to make judicious use of the cash and the machine.

“My advice to those with business ideas but no financial capability is to be patient. Another thing is to attend a business summit, where you get to pitch your business ideas. Going to a summit means you get to meet new friends and network. We urge the winners today to make judicious use of the cash and the equipment.”
