 NYCN Urges Buhari To Appoint More Youth As Ministers

The National Youth Council of Nigeria (NYCN) has on Tuesday reminded president Buhari of his promise during the campaign.

According to them, President Muhammadu Buhari should include more youth in his cabinet as promised during his 2019 general election campaign.

In a statement signed by the president if the group, Oladele Nihi, he said the group is currently “studying the names and ages of the minister nominees to confirm if President Buhari kept to the promises to include youths in his administration”.

”We are reviewing the list to confirm if the president kept his promise he made during the campaign leading to the last general election of more inclusion of youths in his cabinet,” he said.

Premiumtimes reported that NYCN said it hoped a youth will emerge as Minister of Youths and Sports Development.

It added that anything short of this will be ”rejected by the youths of Nigeria”.

The report stated that the previous sports minister, Solomon Dalung, 55-year-old, who hails from Plateau State, did not make the new list.

The omission of Mr Dalung’s name from the list is already generating reactions on social media.

@AyinlaEgba said, ”All sports lovers in Nigeria should organise thanksgiving service that the name “SOLOMON DALUNG” is not on the #MinisterList for the Next Level Ministers #MinisterList.
