Nigeria Youth through the apex youth body heartily congratulates Hon Sunday Dare on his assumption into office as Minister of Youth and Sport. Going by the popular saying that the youth are the future, it is cool to say you have been appointed to oversee the future of the nation, the most sensitive, fragile and responsive ministry.
The assignment at hand is a serious business coming at a time the Youth and Sport, you are to oversee are in a delicate status. However looking keenly into your antecedents, the hope of Nigeria youth is high, with the expectation that in no time thing will start falling in place.
More engagement of the Youth in activities is crucial, the latest occurrence and reoccurrence shows Nigeria youths are constantly fleeing the country on a lookout for greener pasture. With reports showing Nigeria youths are the brain behind operations in so many countries, there is a need to harness the residual youth talent.
The role of the National Youth Council of Nigeria in building the youth development is endless but not with the unending crisis rocking the body, which the ministry contributes more to it in cold complicity. It is our hope that you will be able to accelerate inclusive efforts to supervise and rebuild the National Youth Council of Nigeria after years of conflict, promote national reconciliation and foster lasting peace.
Being the apex youth body, the National leadership ably piloted by Amb. Sukubo SaraIgbe Sukubo pledges to be partners in progress, availing adequate support to hasten youth development while urging you to be selfless in the discharge of your responsibilities. Once again congratulation sir, as you assume office.
