WHO WE ARE?
Youth Engage! is a Television magazine programme concept, borne out of researching the minds of the various youths in our society to provide a platform for the transfer and inculcation of societal core values with a view to securing a better future for our society.
Our youths today are highly fascinated and driven by overt material advancements as symbols of success. They are so passionate about “Success-driven Recognition” that they do not care what it takes to get what. Showcasing of SUV cars, gadgets, furnished apartments and opulence of the likes has become so pervasive to the extent that such shortcuts as advance fee fraud, political jabbering, armed robbery, fraud, etc have become youth pre-occupation.
They obviously see accomplished citizens and want to bridge the gap overnight without knowing that the path to the top is strewn with thorns as necessary conditions and that paying the right dues make for enduring legacies.
Youth Engage! therefore seeks to get our youths and teens to meet our eminent and accomplished citizens to have them share their success stories, especially the challenges they surmounted to get to the top. The essence is to inspire our youths and teens to believe in their potentials, knowing that opportunities abound for everyone who wants to succeed doing the right things.
In the main, we have interviewed among others, the following eminent Nigerians across all fields of endeavors: For example In the academia, Prof. Ogunsheye [the first female lecturer in Nigeria], Prof Bolanle Awe, Prof. Akin Mabogunje, Prof. Oladipo Akinkugbe, Prof. Bisi Sowunmi; In International diplomacy, we have engaged Dr. Ahmed Joda, Chief Emeka Anyaoku, Dr Christopher Kolade. In Politics and management, Otunba Biyi Durojaiye, Chief Philip Asiodu and Dr Felix Ohiewerei. In civil bureaucracy, we have Mrs. Francesca Emmanuel, Mrs. Lolade Oki, Dame Priscilla Kuye and Oba Olufemi Ogunleye. In business, Prince Samuel Adedoyin, Prince Tunde Ponle, Dr. Cosmas Maduka (Coscharis) and Chief Olusegun Obasanjo (GCFR) amongst others
In furtherance of this project, we seek to identify with you as the one of the ‘architect of modern Nigeria with a robust consideration for the many youths’ of this great nation.
The programme is already running in OGTV, BCOS and KWSTV and will be making a greater incursion into national and international network from next quarter.
To contribute to the emergence of a Nigeria where positive core values reign supreme.
