Youth Minister Urges Nigerian Youths To Focus On Opportunities

Minister of Youth and Sports Development Mr. Sunday Dare has advised Nigerian youths to embrace various opportunities created by government for a guaranteed future.

The Minister, on Monday, spoke at the maiden Progressive Youth Conference tagged, “The Future is a Decision”.

Dare said the gathering will be remembered as one of the most important youth gatherings in the country especially for the APC whose core value is progressive principle.

“The youth of the APC stock have chosen a perfect time to interrogate the future of the youth within the progressive ideology and by so doing draw the party and its energetic youth into the arena of constructive discourse.

I thank President Muhammadu Buhari for the great and committed leadership he continues to provide for this country.

From all fronts- political, social and economical- we have a President who continues to engage the youth, NYIF, NPower, Not Too Young to Run Bill, Public Works program. The youth agenda of our great party the APC is alive.

The Nigeria Youth Investment Fund (NYIF) is of one such initiative that this government approved for the Nigerian youth in order to support their innovative ideas, enterprise and business ideas.

At the Ministry of Youth and Sports Development, we recognized the urgency of quickly weighing in and providing the finances that the youth need to grow their enterprise, ideas, and businesses hence our rapid deployment of part of the Fund while the system was being fine-tuned. Once properly set up, NYIF would disburse loans to the youth at a faster pace.

To realize this, the Ministry is in consultations with other partners to expand the loans disbursement platform to fast-track access to the Fund.”
The Minister reiterated belief in youth leadership.

“When they say the youth are the leaders of tomorrow,  I’ve said it repeatedly since I became minister,  that yes,  the youth are the leaders of tomorrow,  but now, in this political construct, the youths are leaders starting today. And unless you start being leaders now in your communities,” he said.
