The Governor of Kogi State has given an assurance that President Muhammadu Buhari has faith and confidence in the Nigerian youths, saying the statement credited to the President was not targeted at millions of highly industrious youth across the nation.
Governor Yahaya Bello stated this through a statement signed by his Director General of Media and Publicity, Kingsley Fanwo stressing that the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari has done more for the unemployed but promising youths more than any administration before him.
Today, hundreds of thousands of Nigerian youths are proud beneficiaries of the N-Power program and other Social Investment Program in the President Muhammadu Buhari administration.
Previous governments abandoned the youths to their fate. In Kogi State, the previous administration shared a loan of Two billion Naira meant for Youth Entrepreneurship Development through SMSE.
Under President Muhammadu Buhari’s leadership, youths are not only given prominent roles to play in Government, but are given hope of a brighter future, providing a soft gap between unemployment and full, rewarding employment.
Bello urged Nigerian youths to avoid being incited against the President by those who stole billions which would have gone into the development of industries with employment capacities.
He said President Buhari’s administration has shown unparalleled support for the youth population of Nigeria.
Bello emphasised efforts of the Ministry of Commerce and Industries at reviving the moribund Textile and Print Industries which he said was a clear demonstration of the President’s moves to create jobs for the Nigerian youth.
He further stated the commitment of the administration at the federal and state level towards Agricultural renaissance which was a manifest commitment towards the covenant of the party to provide jobs for the youth.
For this nation to grow, our youths must embrace education and industry as the best pathways to economic rediscovery and greatness.
The youth population is the best resource of our nation as the bulwark against unemployment and economic stagnation. The message of Mr President is for our youth to own Nigeria and continue to support the drive of his administration to make the nation a better place for us all.
The Governor assured the youths of continued support to make them achieve their individual dreams which would translate into the bigger dream of a better Nigeria.
