Dr. Dorrey Afe Okojie, CEO Homes and Estates Ltd, has called on youths to always strive to impact meaningfully on people’s lives wherever they may be.
The real estate entrepreneur made the call while addressing the media after he was honoured with the prestigious Distinguished Private Sector Practitioner Award by the Benin National Congress(BNC) in Benin City recently.
According to the debonair businessman “the recent clamour for the youths to occupy important position of governance is not misplaced. It’s what obtains right now in most parts of the world. The youths are taking over.
“It’s nothing strange. Nigeria need to wake up to the reality of our time. My advice for the youth is that they should grab the opportunity with both hands and ensure that it counts.
“Such an opportunity should never be allowed to slide past.
On the effect of insecurity on the business environment, Okojie said that government should endeavour to put the right parameters in place to make for a conducive environment for business to thrive.
“The government should place emphasis on making the environment conducive for business to thrive. Investors can only have confidence in establishing industries in areas where there is peace and orderliness.
“Nobody will be willing to do business in a disorderly environment,” he posited.
