Youths on Thursday said they were tired of not taking their proper place in the apex political office holding in the country, as the 2023 general elections draw closer.

Nigerian youth have expressed readiness to come together and synergize themselves to occupy strategic positions of leadership in the country.

The event which was held at the NAF Centre in Jahi-Abuja with the theme: “Mainstreaming the Youth in the National Development Agenda as a Strategic Tool for Youth Empowerment”, had in attendance youths from all works of life.



The President, Nigerian Youth Congress, NYC, Blessing Akinlosotu in his welcome address stated that the summit is aimed at sensitizing youths on issues, policies and programmes that tends to promote the neglect of youths into political offices within the country, adding that the youths are ready to join hands with government to move the nation forward by taking political leadership responsibilities at all levels.

“It is important to state that a nation with a hardworking and creative youth population like ours will develop speedily if it realizes its potentials and harness the same for the betterment of all in the present time and the future to come.

“Mainstreaming the youth in the national agenda should not be construed to mean just recruiting youths in the lower cadre of leadership and government; It is about transforming young people by giving them equal access to all political and socio-economic spheres, and also making them the focal point in the formulation and implementation of government policies,” Akinlosotu said.



Speaking at the event, Hon. Makinde Araoye, the Ekiti Governor’s Special Adviser on Federal Matters, who spoke in the capacity of the Ekiti State governor, His Excellency Dr. Kayode Fayemi urged young Nigerians to be active in party politics ahead of the 2023 general elections.

He noted that besides holding political offices; the energy and knowledge of the youth could also be useful in developing the nation’s economy.

For his part, the NYC Secretary-General, Dr. Edoh Raymond said they are engaging state Governors on the security situation in their states to ensure that the Youth and other Nigerians in those states are safe.

In his words, “We are not violent people and we will support Government policies. A lot of programmes were not accessible to the youth because we were not ready but we are now ready which is the reason for this Summit. If we believe in ourselves without segregation, we can take this country. We have power, there is strength in our numbers”, he said.
