The President-Elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu has been commended for nominating young people for prominent roles in the Presidential Inauguration Committee of the Transition Committee.
The Emerging Leaders Economic Forum (ELEF) in a statement signed by its Deputy Secretary, Danjuma Sada, stated that the President-Elect had even before his swearing-in taken off with the right footing by nominating young people to serve in the Presidential Inauguration Committee, thus showing that his government would not abandon the country’s youth bulge.
“The Emerging Leaders Economic Forum received with delight news report stating that not less than six young Nigerians had been nominated by the President-elect as members to serve in the Presidential Inauguration Committee.
“We applaud the President-elect for this. For us it heralds better days to come for the young Nigerians. It means that Bola Ahmed Tinubu would not abandon the young generations of our country. By this, we are confident of inclusion and being carried along in the process of governance.
“There is no gainsaying that the young people of this nation are the engine room that would deliver the successes Bola Tinubu has promised. They have the brains and the brawn. They have the passion and the grit. They have what it takes. And it gives us pleasure to see that the President-elect does not take this fact for granted.”
The Forum noted that Committee Members such as Hon. Stella Okotete, Mr. Makinde Araoye, Dr. Betta Edu, Samira Saddik, Abuh Andrew Abuh, Hajiya Hadiza Mohammed Kabir, and Donald Wokoma were young Nigerian men and women who had devoted their resources, time, intellect and energy to the progressives ideals, and had earned their nominations through handwork and sheer commitment.
The Emerging Leaders Economic Forum urged the appointees to be good ambassadors of young Nigerians who are looking up to them.
“These young men and women who have been appointed must see themselves as ambassadors of the young people who from afar look up to them as models. They must see their presence in the rooms where decisions are made as an opportunity to prove that the young Nigerian is more than capable of leadership.
“We commend them to be good representatives and to deliver on the huge expectations the country has of them.”
