President Muhammadu Buhari has promised to do everything to ensure a brighter and safer future for Nigerian youths.
He stated this at the Second Edition of the Royal African Young Leadership Forum (RAYLF) 2021 held on Saturday, at Oduduwa Hall of Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, in Osun, where he was represented by Sunday Dare, the Minister for Youth and Sport.
The Minister said the Buhari-led administration has done more than others before it to create opportunities for youths.
He added that under this administration, youths have been allowed to contest public offices, something that was not obtainable in the past. Buhari ascertained that more than 50 per cent of youths would go for primary election in the upcoming local government chairmanship and councillorship elections in Lagos State.
On his part, the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, Ojaja II, who is the founder of the RAYLF, said about the award recipients, “they are admirable and outstanding young Nigerians that are breaking the ceilings, changing the status quo and birthing new speeds of outstanding achievements in Governance and Leadership.”
