The Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, George Akume, has restated the Federal Government’s commitment to harnessing the potentials of Nigerian youths.

He said this was to prioritise the needs of the youth toward improving the socio-economic development of the nation.

Akume made this known on Wednesday in Abuja, when the Director-General, Committee of Youths on Mobilisation and Sensitisation, CYMS, Obinna Nwaka, led his team on a courtesy visit to his office.

The SGF, who was represented by the Permanent Secretary, Nnamdi Mbaeri, said in line with this, the Federal Government had approved funds and 30 per cent slots for youth in governance.

He expressed optimism that the present administration’s policies and programmes geared toward youth empowerment in the area of entrepreneurship and others would bring about the desired economic well-being for the country.

”Your activities have always been portrayed as projecting what the government is doing. We have transmitted from one administration to another and I am happy you consistently identified with each administration.

“The primary purpose is to project the image of the country and of course, to sensitise youths and imbibe the culture of tolerance, hard work, and patriotism, and give the positive reflection to the image of this country.

“I want to commend you and assure you that the government is desirous of ensuring that the youths at any point in time are well positioned for leadership and you can attest to this by the number of youths involved in this administration.

“You will have the support of this office. This administration has the interest of the youths at heart. We will look into all your requests and it will be officially treated,” he said.
