Young Leaders Development Projects, Bauchi State has charged the governments at all levels to do more for the less privileged children across the country. The President of the Association who is a student of Immaculate Conception Secondary School, Bauchi, Miss Mafilda Umeojiaku said disconnection from the orphans poses danger to their lives.

Mafilda said this during an empathy visit to Bauchi State Orphanage and Vulnerable Children Agency, (BASOVCA) on Wednesday. She said that: “If we don’t associate with them we won’t know their challenges. These are the people that don’t have identified parents, they need our love, care and friendship.”

She added that the gap between the poor and the rich is too wide, hence causing disharmony and disunity in the Nation. “We believe that in friendship and in love we can make our country a better place to live.

“Nigeria must build its leaders from the grass and not from the top. Leadership training should be well taught in schools. This is where our minds are widely open to new thing. Our leaders must lead by good example while we follow,” she said. The Association however donated food items to the less privilege kids at the Agency.

The Executive Chairman, BASOVCA, Mrs. Hassana Arkila said commended the young leaders for their commitment and show of love to the children. She urged them to continue growing kind-heartedly. She was represented by the Head, Child Walfare, Mr Adamu Mohammed
