News from Nigeria: Engr. Isaac Balami urges Nigerian Youths on hard work instead of wailing as he pockets Presidential award in Abuja



Nigerian youths have been admonished to remain focus in their quest for a better life and a better Nigeria as wailing wouldn't make or a little meaning to the government.

The founder and Chief Executive Officer of 7 Stars Global Hangar, the first-ever Aircraft Maintenance Repair and Overhauling Facility in the West African sub-region who has also walked through the ladder upto being once the President of the National Association of Aircraft Pilots and Engineers, Engr. Isaac Balami, made this call during the 2021 Nigerian Youths Democracy Lecture, themed: 'Nigeria Democracy System and Good Governance, the Journey So Far', which was held at the NAF Centre on Thursday in Abuja.

Engr. Balami who was one of the recipient of award for his outstanding personality and contribution to the amelioration of the plight of Nigerian youths said entrepreneurship demands resilience, patience and proper planning ranging from short term, medium term to long term as he dedicated his award to hard working Nigerian youths.

Giving a brief author biography of himself, he stating that he started working at the age of 11 in Borno State, saw himself through school right from J S S 1 up till date. Due to this, he believes that he should contribute to the growth of the society.

According to him, ‘’I come from an extremely humble Christian background in Borno state, a state in North-eastern Nigeria. My parents and grandparents were privileged to be Christians, my parents are also pastors. I grew up in a large family, my parents were not doing very well and found it hard to pay for the kind of school I wanted to go to.

‘’One thing I tell people is this, in life, you must know who you are! God did not bring anybody into this world for no reason, everybody has a reason why he or she is existing. My family named me Isaac because they believed I would bring laughter to the family, community and my generation.

‘’So, I remain focus though the future was still obscure then. At a very young age, I would do menial jobs like laundry, farming among others to augment the little money my parents had to go to school. But today, who would have thought that a mere labourer just years ago could have once be the National President of the Association of Nigerian Pilots and Engineers? Who would have thought that an ordinary ‘mai suya‘ in the north some years ago could become the past spokesperson of Trade Union Congress of Nigeria? Who would have thought that a filthy and stenchy soak-away evacuator from the North-Eastern part of Nigeria could become the President of Arewa Youth Consultative Forum? Who would have thought that a man who could hardly afford a daily meal could cater for over 500 widows and sponsor nearly 500 children in school as a commitment from a foundation he owns? Who would have thought that a helpless man who faced a lot of challenges would be the founder of Nigeria Rebirth Project?’’ he asked calmly.



The business magnate appreciated the Nigerian Youths Congress for doing so much mega projects across the country. He pledged his commitment to support them.

"Let us keep pushing, we can not continue lamenting. Nigeria is not suffering from witch craft but 'crycraft'. The more you cry, the more you remain in one position" he said.

Ahmad Lawan as guest of honour, His excellency Prof. Ben Ayade- Gov of Cross River State as Special Guest of Honour, His excellency Dr. Abdullahi Ganduje- Gov.
