Daily Trust - - NEWS - By Fran­cis Okeke

Pres­i­dent of the Na­tional Youth Coun­cil of Nigeria (NYCN) Abul­lahi Ab­dul­ma­jeed has con­vened a sup­port group to serve as sup­port net­work to co­or­di­nate the en­gage­ment of young Nige­ri­ans’ con­tri­bu­tions to the na­tional con­fer­ence.

A state­ment is­sued by the chair­man of the group Mr. David Balami said: “Amidst all the chal­lenges fac­ing this coun­try, we see the na­tional con­fer­ence as an op­por­tu­nity to get it right and more im­por­tantly, to make sure young people are at the heart of the con­ver­sa­tions at the con­fer­ence.”

Com. Ab­dul­ma­jeed who is a rep­re­sen­ta­tive the coun­cil at the con­fer­ence said: “We want to take the con­ver­sa­tion be­yond the walls of the na­tional con­fer­ence, hence this group; to am­plify the voice of young Nige­ri­ans, to fa­cil­i­tate the con­tri­bu­tions and as­pi­ra­tions of or­di­nary Nige­rian youths, such that the del­e­gates can fo­cus on the po­lit­i­cal nit­tygritty of get­ting the point into ac­tion­able plans at the con­fer­ence.”

The group will use dif­fer­ent ap­proaches to en­gage young Nige­ri­ans in­clud­ing so­cial me­dia and on­line chan­nels.

A ded­i­cated web­site will be set up to serve as one-stop re­source cen­tre and re­port sup­port and ac­tiv­i­ties of the youth del­e­gates as well as town hall meet­ings.
