Dimapur, Dec. 28 (EMN):
The rate of success among educated Naga youths is too marginal due to lack of determination, perseverance and consistency, according to Inspector General for Fire & Emergency Services, Neilasa Sopfü.

Expressing concern at the alarming increase in youth unemployment in Nagaland, the official urged students to come out of their comfort zone and to take up any job for livelihood.

Sopfü was speaking as the guest speaker of the Kacharigaon Phevima Students’ Union’s (KPSU) silver jubilee programme on Saturday in the village’s Panchayat premises in Dimapur.

The officer said there is a great challenge for the present generation due to decreasing natural resources. Nonetheless, he was optimistic that it can be tackled by the human resources within the educated population.

While encouraging the students to identify their potential and to pursue it with determination, he said only hard work and persistence will bring success.

The speaker asserted that wishful thinking cannot bring the desired results and that the students cannot afford to be complacent. He recommended ‘brainstorming sessions’ within the educated youths to ponder on how to bring about resourceful results.

Kacharigaon Phevima Village Council’s chairman Vitho Zao also spoke at the event. He called for change in the current educational system to tackle the challenges posed by the unemployment crisis among the youths.

Another speaker, the KPSU’s founder Lorhehol Neikha spoke on 3 Cs: ‘Christ centred foundation, commitment, and concentration.’ He exhorted the students about the value of education and life.

A jubilee souvenir was released during the event, besides academic excellence awards which were given to meritorious students.
