Speaking at the award ceremony, convener of the event, Simon Tuleh, said the award is to bring them into limelight in order to possibly aspire for leadership positions as popularity matters in the politics of Nigeria. He added that it is high time young Nigerians started taking interest in politics.
He said: “I see a future in Nigeria where young people will take their place, not just in the public service, but in the private sector when we are talking about 10 young CEOs in different sectors. As long as Nigeria continues to exist, there will be need for inclusion of young people. The recent statistics from the NBS and the United Nations shoes that young people have the highest population in the country. That is why political leaders have been calling on young people to take their rightful place.”
