He emphasised the detrimental impact of societal neglect on the younger generation, stressing that without intentional support, Nigeria risks plunging into the abyss of backwardness.

Yusuf underscored the need for strategic, purposeful, and determined resilience in the pursuit of success. Drawing parallels between the marathon of athletics and the journey to greatness and urged individuals to cultivate qualities such as momentum, stamina, perseverance, and determination.

According to Yusuf, unlike a one-off competition, the path to greatness is a continuous marathon with rewards at every step and an ultimate reward awaiting those who reach the finish line.
