The National Youth Council of Nigeria (NYCN) has attributed the increased insecurity and youth restiveness to unemployment. He thereby called for urgent government intervention that will help engage the youth meaningfully.

The new President of the Council, Comrade Al-Mustapha Asuku said this during the inauguration of the new National Executive of NYCN, in Abuja.

He said, they are appealing to President Muhammadu Buhari to include sizeable number of Nigeria Youth as headship of critical key sector of the economy thereby repositioning the Country amongst comity of nations.

“As youths of this Great Nation, we promise the President that if Nigerian youths are involved in governance, issues such as banditry, violence and terrorism which are as a result of personal interest or perceived injustice or grievances will be brought to the barest minimum,” he said. The Deputy President, Innocent Nduanya said the new executive would also work towards mobilizing youths from all parts of the country for effective youth participation in programmes within and outside the country.

The Chairman, Board of Trustees of the Council, Dr. Dickson Akoh tasked them on the need for hard work, integrity and accountability.

“We have, by this inauguration, reiterated our faith in the Nigerian Youth and the Leadership of the Incorporated Trustee; we have underscored our determination to showcase to every Nigerian Youth that only the will of the people is the foundation of Good Governance. We urge Nigerian youth not to let us down,” he said.
