The Corporate Institute of Strategic Research (CISR) says the failure of older generations to mentor youths is responsible for the challenges facing Nigeria.

CISR President Princewill Inyang said this in Abuja at the institute’s corporate induction workshop.

According to him, as senior professionals are getting old and out of service, tackling issues of poverty, morality and security is hard to fix as those who took over do not know how to fix them.

“We’re looking at mentors and researchers that can groom others as our members are high-ranking officers in their perspective as they have visions. 

“We understand that there’s no transferable skill as nobody wants to transform and it is the problem. 

“So, building this credibility together to solve a common problem is what the institute is doing. We have to hold a model on training of youths to make them innovative to build tentacles for leadership.”
