What would make me run for political office —Rabbi Cyril, youth advocate
In an interview with KINGSLEY ALUMONA, Rabbi Cyril, a youth advocate, social entrepreneur, ministerial leader, and founder of Blazing House Global, spoke about his work with youths, politics, and relationship issues, among other things. Rabbi Cyril started his social entrepreneurship and ministerial work in 2017 after realizing that a good number of young people attended his birthday celebrations. To prepare for this work, he received training under the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Entrepreneurship Development Center (EDC), the University of Nigeria (UNN), Dominion City Leadership Institute (DLI), Teens Mentors and Coaches, 9nineteen Network, and Destiny Fixers Advanced Leadership Institute. Blazing House Global, his youth foundation, is aimed at helping young people discover their purpose and unleash their talents towards achieving great things in life. Rabbi Cyril stated that his vision is to ignite the hearts of people to live a purpose-driven life, to raise an envoy that would spearhead a reformative movement in the major sectors of life, and to revive every dormant dream in the youth community for national development. He expressed his interest in running for political office if he is approached by a good number of responsible individuals who are in search of a competent leader.
Rabbi Cyril believes that life rises and falls on relationship platforms, and he advised youths to choose financially stable partners for marriage who know what it means to make money and contribute to their life in a definite way. He added that marriage is a beautiful union for the mature and that youths should equip themselves and get ready for the uncommon task. Finally, Rabbi Cyril clarified that the name Rabbi, which is part of his name, was given to him by his father before he was baptized and that he is neither a Jew nor a Jewish preacher.
