The House of Representatives Committee Chairman on Youth Development and member representing Oron Federal Constituency Martin Esin has lauded President Ahmed Bola Tinubu for appointing a significant number of youth into his government.
In a Press Statement issued and made available to newsmen in Uyo on Friday to mark 2023 International Youth Day, Esin noted that the appointment of a good number of youth as Personal Aides as well as their nomination for appointment as Ministers has restored confidence among Nigerian youths.
Esin hoped that youths from his federal Constituency will blossom under the administration of President Tinubu.
He said youths from his Constituency comprising of Oron/Mbo/Okobo/Udung Uko/Urueoffong Oruko local government areas have appealed to the President to do more for them as they constitute more than 60 percent of Nigeria’s population.
He stated that considering the number and energy of the youth, empowering them amounts to serving the nation and protecting her future.
The statement reads in parts:
“Luckily, the youth constitute more than 60% of the Nigerian constitution.
“This makes our nation youthful, productive and vibrant. With such humongous number, any policy of government which empowers the youth directly impacts the nation and protects her future. With youth constituting about 15 per cent of the ministerial nominees undergoing screening at the Senate, President Tinubu has improved on past records.”
The lawmaker also saluted Nigerian youth for their hard work, resilience and loyalty to the nation despite challenges.
He urged them to remain steadfast and cultivate virtues which will make them good citizens and excellent leaders.
“On this occasion of the International Youth Day 2023, I salute your resilience, doggedness and loyalty. Please, remain true and faithful because the nation is yours. Do everything to protect and safeguard her.
“We inherited a great nation from our forebears. We must bequeath a greater nation to the next generation.”
Esin described this year’s theme of the International Youth Day celebration “Green Skills For Youth: Towards a Sustainable World” as timely, apt and contemporary.
He said the World to be sustainable, the youth who represent the future must be imbued with green skills for their personal growth, survival and sustenance of the World at large.
