New NYO President Presses For Youth Inclusion In Governance

Newly installed national president of Nigeria Youth Organisation (NYO), Duke Alamboye, has promised to champion reforms that will make the country’s youths contribute positively to the development of the nation.

Alamboye made the pledge at the just-concluded national stakeholders’ meeting in Lagos.

He said NYO is one of the oldest youth organisations in Nigeria and thus would drive the positive change the country desires.

He said, “Our organisation is one of the oldest youth organisations in Nigeria. In my tenure, we have the responsibility to restructure the state organ. We will source for capable youths who can handle state executives and form the national structure. Most importantly, to regain the confidence and peace of our organisation.”

Alamboye, who commended the determination of President Bola Tinubu to change the narratives, noted that NYO would work closely with Ministry of Youths and other relevant government agencies to ensure that Nigerian youths are involved in governance so that their great potential could be harnessed  and add value to the nation’s economic growth.

“We will begin to support the good policies of the government and go against ones that are not in conformity with the development of our country,” he added.

According to him, NYO will also play a major role in tackling the current security challenges in the country, explaining that the organisation plans to commence a nationwide advocacy and sensitisation of youths on security and development across the country.

Also, the national secretary of the Board of Trustees (BoT) of NYO, Dr Olusegun Adeleye, said the organisation is prepared to organise social empowerment programmes for the Nigerian youths, among others.

He said, “The organisation will reemphasis the dignity of labour and contribute to the security of the country like we did in the 80s when we were in the service of administration of the organisation.

“We have had meetings and have agreed that we will be organising a social empowerment programme. This administration will focus on renewed energy by reassuring the youths tremendously by creating an enabling environment for empowerment programmes.

“In terms of security, the youths will live up to their expectations in maintaining peace and harmony within other youths and the entire country.”
