DIGNIFIED Youth Development Mission (DYDM), a non-governmental and non-profit organisation has enlightened Nigerian youths on the peril in unhealthy addiction and HIV/AIDS.
The organisation enlightened the youths during the 2009 Dignified Youth Rally, themed “Repositioning for Outstanding Success,” at the New Lecture Theatre, North Campus of The Polytechnic, Ibadan recently.
The director of the organisation, Dr. (Mrs.) Bola Adeniyi, during her lecture on “Dignified Youth and Unhealthy Addiction” discussed the peril in unhealthy addiction, while suggesting ways out. She also gave a pictorial lecture on HIV/AIDS.
She noted that for any youth to record outstanding success, he must totally avoid any form of unhealthy addiction and abstain from casual sex and the usage of unsterilised sharp objects.
The organisation, however, gave educational endowment to five orphans. The endowment according to Dr. Adeniyi, was to empower the youth academically, thereby reducing the spate of social vices in the society.
Meanwhile, the team of the DYDM had earlier paid a courtesy visit on the Rector of The Polytechnic, Ibadan, Professor Moshood Nasaar, to intimate him with the organisation, while the latter gave an assurance of total support.
The participants called for the establishment of the organisation in Nigerian tertiary institutions.
