The Institute Transformation (INT), a non-governmental organisation, says it’s committed to grooming generation of transformational leaders as part of the bid to tackle the country’s crisis.

The dropped the hint during a two-day organised for students of Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka, Anambra state, over the weekend. The programmed titled, “Raising generation transformation”, according to the organisers, was aimed at repositioning and redirecting the mindset of youths in preparation to becoming better leaders.

Speaking during the occasion, one of the facilitators, and a pastor of Fathers House, Rehoboth International Christian Centre, Lagos, Olumide Olugbenle, stressed on the need to steer youths to think about transformation of their country and continent, warning that if things were not done urgently, the current generation might be worse.

Pastor Olugbenle, who called for change in value system and mindset, urged participants to be more productive and to shun bad influencers. He charged youths to be diligent, responsible, modest and to show integrity in all they do.

The transformational expert argued that no nation or institution transformed without going through challenges, remarking that youths should look beyond the seeming endless challenges around them to carve a niche for themselves.

“To say that the problem is much is another way of saying that my problem solving skill is in adequate. The youths must think outside of the box to scale through hurdles,” he said.

Also speaking, the director of Next Generation Youth Leadership Centre of INT, Dr. Ebere Eze, noted that the programme designed for all tertiary institutions in Nigeria, was to create awareness among the youths on national issues and their roles to make Nigeria better.
