The National Youth Council of Nigeria (NYCN) has recognised the Oloke-Torotoro Youth Development Association, days after meeting the formal requirements of the council.
The executives of the association were inaugurated by the leadership of NYCN, Obafemi-Owode Local Government branch, Ogun State.
The National Youth Council of Nigeria (NYCN) was established in 1964. It is charged with policy formulation and implementation on issues bordering on youth development in Nigeria. It is the umbrella body and the mouthpiece of the Nigerian Youth.
The coordinator of the NYCN, Obafemi-Owode branch, Comrade Oluwemimo Benjamin, while presenting official certificates to the executives, said the youths of Oloke-Torotoro have become one of the recognised youth associations by NYCN.
“We have heard about your good deeds in developing your community. I need to add that there is a need to be law-abiding citizens and desist from violence and criminal activities because a good name is better than silver and gold,” he said.
Baale of Oloke-Torotoro, Sunday Ayinde Ogundipe, said he appreciated God and the efforts of the youths in the community and prayed that God would support them to achieve their plans for the development of the community.
