Youths have a special role to play in modern social, economic and political dispensations of the Nigerian democratic system.
To propel the growth of the youths, they must be encouraged work to discover their hidden talents, work out ideas in every walk of life and set their moral thoughts on the parachute of development so as to build our dear nation.
In other for the youths to be productive in the political system of today, selfless leaders must recognize the potentials of the youths, and give them the necessary opportunities to thrive.
Their voice must be given greater attention to, in an effort to make their contributions worthwhile in the way we are governed, so as to allow them play a greater role in the national leadership and governance of the nation.
This is why I appreciate and applaud the sincere efforts of the Deputy Senate President, Obarisi Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, a youth-friendly, listening and selfless Senator whose appointees is mostly made up of young people that cuts across the length and breadth of the country.
The Deputy Senate President, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege who clearly understands the distinct role of the youths in nation building recently sponsored A Bill For An Act to alter the provisions of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 to specify the minimum number of youths and women appointed as Ministers, Ambassadors and State Commissioners”
This bills seeks to reserve 30 percent of appointments for youth and women at the federal and state level.
The Deputy Senate President, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege is providing great opportunities for the Nigerian youths facing these barriers in government to gain experience that they can build on in the future.
Obarisi has shown that he is willing to pass the torch of leadership responsibility to a new generation of young men in a society that frowns and leaves their beauties and potentials in the carcass of passing time.
