The Deputy Governor of Delta State, Barr. Dcn. Kingsley Burutu Otuaro, has charged youths in the state and beyond to position themselves as problem solvers.
The Deputy Governor emphasized that success is tied to one’s ability to identify a need and proferring an effective solution to that problem.
Otuaro stated this while speaking at the Aspire Global Conference 2021 on Saturday in Warri, Delta State.
The event which was held at the Mom Civic Centre, Airport Road, saw the Deputy Governor taking the platform to inspire an audience of young people who were ready to learn.
Otuaro took time to narrate, after thanking the organizers of the event, how challenging the environment he was born into and brought up was.
He gave insights into how he identified himself as a problem solver as an undergraduate in the late 90s, and how self-awareness has made him successful.
“I want to thank the Organizers, this indeed is unprecedented. I am thankful to see the super organizers and the cross section of attendants.
“My definition of the phenomenon of success of any man is the ability of that man to find a need and problem and providing a solution to it. That is fundamental as the call for this meeting.
“I was born and brought up from the creeks; a very challenging environment. After I left secondary school I was in the creeks for 9 years before going to University. I discovered that I could solve problems, and that helped me build relationships.
“I was regularly called up by my community governing council from school to attend closed caucus meetings even when I was not an elected official.
“However, I still fought through many challenges, redefined my socialization process through meeting people and reading books, and achieved success.
“You need to discover what you are made of and find a way of giving it a commercial value. When you become a problem solver, you will become a successful entrepreneur, ” he said.
The event had many such seasoned speakers and great personalities to speak on various topics of learning.
Resource persons at the evemt included Rume Daniels, Zion Oshiobugie, Barry Wonder, Hon. Ben Ibakpa, Onye Ubanata, Ossai Darlington Ogaga, Orede Uduaghan, and a host of others.
