Speaker of the Nigerian House of Representatives, Rt Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila, has urged Nigerian youths to be active in the political affairs of the country. ayokinews.com reports
Gbajabiamila made this known on Thursday, when he received a youth delegation led by the Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Mr. Sunday Dare.
“I’ll ask that you carry that advocacy out there because it’s for you. The youths are the greatest asset of any nation, not just in Nigeria,” he said.
“Since the Not-Too-Young-to-Run bill became law, you’ve not taken advantage of that. The Act appears to be a paper tiger. The enabling environment to work for that Act isn’t capitalised on.”
