Vice President Yemi Osinbajo says engagement with the Nigerian youths has to be transparent and honest in order to build a progressive society and nation

This, as explained by the Vice President , was why the implementation of the Buhari administration’s Social Investment Programmes were not done on the basis of sharing slots between public officials or political chieftains, but in a manner whereby Nigerians who knew no one could benefit and did benefit.

Vice President Osinbajo stated this when he received the executive committee of the Young Parliamentarians Forum led by its Chairman,  Kabir Tukura  from Kebbi State.

Acknowledging that there are indeed important issues to be addressed, while noting the crucial place of youths in building a successful nation, the Vice President said the youths are not just a demography but they are in the majority, stating that the government must find a way for them to be represented as effectively as possible.

He welcomed the support of the House of Representatives members for the newly formed National Economic Council  committee set up  to interface with youths, and other stakeholders on issues of employment, social safety-nets and national unity.

Leader of the delegation, Hon. Tukura commended the Vice President’s sincere interaction with the youths over the years and especially in the wake of the #EndSARS protests across the country and called for improved interaction between youths and leaders at all levels.
