“I dream of a nation built on the standard of good governance with great leaders. This is the vision that drives me. And I am passionate about influencing just one person in my community to influence another person in their community, and together we can positively influence the nation” – Samson Akinyemi Oluwaseun.

Samson’s goals for the year 2021 included to positively influence students in secondary schools with self leadership skills. While he was just thinking on how to go about it, Do Take Action came to his rescue.

He later carried out “The school prefect” project at Comprehensive High School in Oshodi, Lagos State. There, he addressed the issue of electing incapable leaders and the reluctance of capable leaders to run for office.
