Martins Esin, chairman of the House Committee on Youth Development, has praised young people in Nigeria for their ability to persevere in the face of adversity.
Esin, a representative for the Oron/Mbo/Okobo/Udung Uko/Urueoffong Oruko Federal constituency, issued a message on Saturday to mark the 2023 International Youth Day. He urged President Bola Tinubu to do more for the youth, who make up more than 60% of the population.
He urged the younger generation to keep their heads up and develop the qualities that will make them productive adults and effective leaders.
Esin, who spoke on the topic of “Green Skills For Youth: Towards a Sustainable World,” emphasized the importance of instilling these environmentally conscious habits in today’s young for the sake of their own development, survival, and the planet’s long-term viability.
However, he praised the president for hiring a large number of young people into government positions, saying that he is convinced Nigeria will flourish under President Tinubu’s administration because of the recruitment of young people as personal aides and their nomination for employment as ministers.
He praised the youth for their “resilience, doggedness, and loyalty” on the occasion of International Youth Day 2023. Keep being loyal, for this country is yours. Take all necessary precautions to ensure her safety. Our forefathers left us a great country. We owe it to future generations to leave them a stronger country.
Fortunately, more than 60% of Nigeria’s citizens are under the age of 35. As a result, our country is young, industrious, and full of life. Because of their sheer numbers, the future of any country can be improved by enacting any program that strengthens its young people. President Tinubu has exceeded his predecessors by appointing 15 percent younger ministerial nominees currently being reviewed by the Senate.
