“As a youth organisation in Niger Delta, we are calling on the President Elect, Bola Tinubu to consider appointing more youths into his Government starting from May 29th 2023.

“This should be so because the youths cannot continue to take the back seat after delivering before, during and after elections.

“It is no longer a news that youths of the country occupies a major part of the country’s population hence giving them a sense of belonging in the Government will make sense. We are really hoping for the best in this Government. “
