The Federal Government has challenged Nigerian youths to imbibe the virtue of the nation’s founding fathers as the country marches towards attaining national development for all, just as it expressed
commitment in advancing policies geared towards promoting their potentials.
The Senior Special Assistance to President Goodluck Jonathan On Youth and Student Affairs, Comrade Jude Imagwe, spoke while commenting on
the 2014 International Youth Day celebration also called on Nigerian youths to support the re-election bid of President Goodluck Jonathan in consolidating the successes recorded by his administration.
Imagwe said no nation can attain its full potential in terms of development without investing in the youths and added that the realization of this fact informed the present government decision to engage young people in policy decision in the country by putting in
place workable framework that is capable of fast-tracking goal attainment.
He also charged the youth to remain focus and resilient in spite of daunting security challenges confronting the nation and expressed
confidence that the Federal Government under the leadership of President Jonathan is not relenting in its effort in bringing to an end the activities of the bloody thirsty Boko Haram insurgents.
“As we join other counterpart globally in marking the International Day for Youths, I want young people to know that future of this great country belong to all of us. And that is why we must all shun any negative tendencies or action that is capable denying us of that great future.
“Election is around the corner, we must allow ourselves to be used by desperate politicians as thugs to advance their selfish interest. And that is why President Jonathan has repeatedly said no blood of Nigerian is worth shedding for political gains.
