He therefore urged the youths to ensure that they are active players in the ongoing renewed hope development agenda of the country.


“Nigeria’s greatest endowment is not its oil, it is not its many natural resources given to us by God to benefit humanity, rather, our greatest endowment is in the number of our teeming and productive youths.

“The youth population of Nigeria is critical in achieving sustainable economic growth and development.


The Nigerian youth population is one of the largest in the world, and we must fully harness the enormous potentials of our youth population to boost economic activities and prosperity by investing massively in formal and informal education,” the minister said. He emphasised that the present administration is leaving no stone unturned to ensure that youths play vital roles in its progressive framework implementations and therefore, urged them to take up skills acquisition and key into the initiative of “one youth, two skills” to be launched soon by President Bola Tinubu.


“It cannot be argued that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has given Nigerian youths a voice in politics.

The youth population is having a significant representation in the Federal Cabinet and National Assembly.

The involvement of youths in government at all levels through the youth development initiatives of Bola Tinubu is enhancing good governance in the country.
