The President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has on Tuesday shared some of the plans his incoming administration has put in place for the teaming Nigerian youths.
Tinubu disclosed that his administration would unfold programmes and initiatives beneficial to youths in the areas of Advisory Council, Presidential Fellowship Scheme, Business Incubation Centres, Micro Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME) Academy, Consumer Credit and Sports Revolution.
The erstwhile Governor of Lagos State who was represented by the National Youth Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Dayo Israel, promised greater inclusivity of the youths in governance.
He also called on youths to join hands with the incoming administration in creating a safe and secure environment for all as there can be no growth or development without security and peace.
He said: "Nigeria will continue to invest in her youth, nay African. We will unfold programs and initiatives that are beneficial to our youth in the areas of Youths Advisory Council, Presidential Fellowship Scheme, Business Incubation Centres, MSME Academy, Consumer Credit and Sports Revolution.
"Greater inclusivity in governance for our youth now is important for our future. I was once a youth and I know and see the boundless creative energies, innovative skills, Entrepreneurship spirit and potentials of our youth. And the time to invest in them is now.
I urge you all to network, collaborate and partner as young people across the African continent because you share the same passions and are also confronted with similar challenges - unemployment, insecurity, lack of credit and finance, poor education and lack of opportunities."
Meanwhile, Comrade David Aper Nyor, the President of Benue Youth Volunteers for Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has revealed his plans to embark on a road journey, on foot, from Makurdi, the Benue State capital to the Nation's capital, Abuja, to witness the inauguration of President-Elect.
Nyor, who hails from Konshisha LGA of Benue, said in an interview that he is embarking on the journey to express his joy towards the election of Tinubu and his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Nyor in a statement appreciated Sen. Barnabas Gemade for his support and major contributions to Benue Youths Volunteers for Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
He commended Sen. Gemade for promoting peace, unity, equity, fairness and justice, as he clearly demonstrated by the electoral victory of the President-elect in the February 25 election in Benue State.
According to him, the road journey to Abuja from Makurdi is a mark of honour and also to disparage the ill-conceived notion from those he described as "forces of darkness," that Tinubu would not be inaugurated.
