One lawmaker who has continued to etched his name in the minds of his constituents is Hon. Kolawole Ologede. It’s gratifying that the lawmaker representing Akure North State Constituency at the Ondo State House of Assembly, Hon. Kola Ologede is playing his part in actively supporting young people in their journey to leadership positions.
This is such an important investment in the future of the community, as it takes a lot of initiative and dedication to make youth leadership a priority, especially when it’s not part of a formal program or initiative.
Passion is such an important quality in a leader, especially when it comes to something as important as youth leadership. The House of Assembly member’s passion is clearly having a positive impact on the community and Ondo State as a whole.
He has an in built traits and one of them is to see that youths are mentally transformed such that they can aspire to leadership positions.
Recently, one of his proteges, Comrade Busari Hussein emerged as Chairman of the Niger Delta Youth Council of Nigeria( Ondo State Chapter).
Hussein’s emergence is a tested to Ologede’s unwarranted commitment at empowering youth into leadership positions. The mentor’s role is to support their mentees by empowering them to resolve current issues and to develop coping strategies for the future. appropriate boundaries. Acknowledging their strengths, talents and gifts and encouraging them to find ways to use them.
Ologede, a youth himself, believes youths must be mentored to avoid generational gaps. Mentoring can help youth as they go through challenging life transitions, including dealing with stressful changes at home or transitioning to adulthood.
