The President-elect, General Muhammadu Buhari, has stated that his administration will work towards the empowerment of Nigerian youths within his first six months in office.
Buhari stated this on Tuesday at a symposium with the theme: “Maximizing the potentials ofas Economic Drivers for a secured nation in the next dispensation,” organised by Buhari Volunteers Network (BVN).
“Let the government be on ground, we will tackle each problem one at a time. The issue of probe, yes, we have to investigate before prosecution, we have to know who spend the money and where the money went to.”
Buhari, represented by a Political Science and International Relations lecturer at the Pace University, New York, Prof. Mohammed Garba, stated that his administration would focus on opening up the mining and oil and gas sectors so as to create jobs for the youths, adding this will ensure youths engage in commercial activities and mentoring programmes.
“Nigerian youths have been supporting the General (Buhari) and the party. They have exhausted all their time and energy on the General and the success of the party. So we are looking forward to see how to get them employed, trained or involved in commercial activities and mentoring programmes.
“That is what we are going to be looking at in the next six months because these youths are computer and IT savvy. They are very knowledgeable in various fields. So we have to harness all those talents into one group. We cannot predict the number of youths to be employed because right now there is financial crisis.”
