Governor Nyesom Wike Volunteer Network(WVN) says the governor of Rivers State’s agenda for youths will address youth restiveness, unemployment and poverty in the country when he becomes President in 2023.
The group stated that the plans were highlighted in his agenda which will be unveiled soon.
The group stated in a statement on Friday, April 22th, 2022, that Wike believes in the youths and he is ready to rescue them from the iron grip of evil administrators who only invest in the future of their immediate family and leave the children of the poor to suffer untold hardship.
The network said there will be full representation of youths in the government of Wike when elected president of the country in 2023.
In a statement signed by its Coordinator General, Solomon Okoduwa, WVN said no country can develop without investing in the future of its youths.
“Worst still, our youths have been negatively engaged in various social vices that have affected the socio-economic progress of our country,
thus; leaving the impoverished populace in perpetual fear of insecurity, food insecurity and unemployment which keeps escalating.
“However, disappointments from successive administrations from the
military era till date especially President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration have led to a continuous progression in unemployment even with
higher institutions churning out hundreds of thousands of graduates yearly into the society.”
He continued: “Confronted with these realities Nigerian youths have become victims of human trafficking in search of greener pasture in other shores, drug peddling, banditry and other anti social vices which are sad stories.”
Okoduwa also assured of Wike’s eagerness to hit the ground running and reverse these narratives.
According to him, “Governor Wike is desirous to make Nigeria work. The country has all it takes to make it work which includes the youth. A path needs to be charted for them. His Excellency is enthusiastic to make Nigerian youths critical stakeholders to positively contribute to the successful running of the government at all levels when elected.
“The youths require a meeting point with those that will chart a course for their involvement in nation building engendering advocacy against bad governance, human trafficking, cultism, drug abuse and other social vices.
“The Rivers Governor’s passion is borne out of strong conviction that Nigeria can work,” Okoduwa stated.
