Nigerian youths have called on national leaders to integrate the youths into the circle of decision-making if efforts towards improving the socio-economic sectors of the nation must yield the desired goals.
This was the resolution of national youth stakeholders under the umbrella of the Youth and Civil Society Coalition for Development, YCSCD, at a one-day stakeholders meeting marking the 2021 International Youth Day in Abuja yesterday.
In a communiqué signed by the national president of YCSCD, Comrade Aminu Aminu, and made available to Nigerian Pilot, on Thursday, the coalition posited that Nigerian youth had been roundly neglected in decision makings in the country for long, especially in the process of selecting or national leaders.
It therefore urged all political parties in the country to consult the youth before selecting candidates that will represent them in national elections, warning that failure to do that, such political parties would be left to regret their actions.
“Today is a great day in world history which is dedicated to the youth. After our exhaustive deliberation we arrived at the following resolutions: Youth innovation for human and planetary health care can never be achieved if youth integration in the mainstream of national affairs remains an issue of debate. Hence Youth and Civil Society Coalition for Development and other stakeholders resolved to mobilise Nigerian youths to mount pressure on the Senate president and speaker House of Representatives to proceed on one month compulsory recess where they will engage youth in change practices along food value chain, plant enough tree to protect the climate which is presently being threatened.
“Research has confirmed the benefits of ICT to innovations in human activities, hence young people must leverage on it to pursue increase participation not only in food systems transformation but in politics and entrepreneurship. Undoubtedly in Nigeria, youth involvement in agriculture and Information Communication Technology can jumpstart more opportunities as we represent the engine room of development.
“This day youths must avail themselves of opportunities provided by Buhari’s administration and we ask the government to do more, as no investment in youth sector is too much and it is a complimentary effort capable of sustaining peace in Nigeria.
“Finally, Youth and Civil Society Coalition for Development and other youth stakeholders warn all political parties to consult the youth before selecting candidates that will represent them in national elections; failure to do that they will be left to regret their actions.
“As this time we will take our political destiny in our hands and mobilise in millions for credible Nigerians, not minding tribe or religion,” the coalition averred.
