He said: “What I am saying in essence is that we have a duty of mentorship to younger people to say to them that sometimes, you don’t always get what you push for but that not necessarily mean that is the end of the road, you keep knocking on the door, banging it and inevitably, it will open. How long it will open for will depend on your capacity to organise.

“At the risk of sounding immodest, that’s what got some of us into politics. We believe that another Nigeria is possible, a better Nigeria is possible and we should not stand by the sidelines in pushing for that Nigeria of our dreams, we are not there yet but that does not mean we will give up.

Speaking further, Fayemi stated that there is a glass ceiling for Nigerians in Canada that could prevent them from achieving their possible peak.

He said: “Don’t succumb to despondency, there is a lot to hail in this country. There is a lot to frustrate you, a lot to want to make you give up and pick that visa and go to Canada. I know it is a popular destination – Canada — but you know what? There is also a glass ceiling in Canada. When you get to the top of it, you will now discover there is a glass ceiling there. This (Nigeria) is the place where there is no glass ceiling, let us work towards making it a better place

Governor Fayemi also addressed Nigerian Youths concerning their activities on Social media. He warned that Nigerian youths to stop dedicating so much energy in attacking Ministers and Governors on Social media. He said their energy should rather be spent on organizing their community starting from their individual wards to replace the people in Government with people they have faith in.
