Nigerian artist, Peter Okoye of defunct P’Square, has tasked Nigerian youth to be self-driven and not depend on the government.

Mr P, who was a guest speaker at the 12th edition of The Future Awards Africa held in Lagos, said there was need for youths to harness their personal and business skills to make them less dependent on a 'government that is challenged'.

“There is need for Nigerian youths to develop their knowledge, attitude and skills and explore opportunities with their God-given talents. The youths are the leaders of tomorrow and a lot depends on their present output.

“While the societal, economic, political, and governance outlook appears dim, the youth should not be discouraged because amid all, there are still some youths that are making positive impact.

“They should come and start doing things for themselves and not always wait for the government; sometimes, we depend on our government and we become so lazy; make an impact for yourself,” Okoye advised.

In an interview in November, Peter Okoye, the one half of the defunct group, P’Square, has said that he is done doing business with his brothers: Paul and Jude Okoye.
