The youths of Ohaneze Ndigbo has lauded the youth leadership of Ogun over its far-reaching and numerous interventions on youth-focused activities across the state.

During a visitation to Ogun Youth House, yesterday Monday May 30, 2022, the newly elected Executives of Ohaneze Ndigbo Youth Forum stated the advocacy visit was borne out of the intent to identify with the Youth Council as the umbrella body for all youth formations, promote peace and tranquility, and ensure inclusiveness of Ohaneze Ndigbo in developmental affairs of the youth constituency.

In an address by the Forum’s President, Prince Kingsley Chukuwuleta mentioned the igbo youths living in the state are peaceful and business-minded citizens who have recorded tremendous progress in their personal and business endeavors owing to the enabling environment devoid of ethnic sentiments in Ogun State. “Furthermore, we are here to give assurances of our solidarity to the youth leadership and Governor of Ogun State, Prince Dapo Abiodun, who has performed satisfactorily especially in the area of economic development and ease of doing business,” he said.

The State Chairman of the Youth Council, Com. Abdul-Jabar Ayelaagbe, having appreciated the delegation, commended the leadership for the well-thought resolution to affiliate with the Youth Council towards enhancing youth developmental goals.

According to Ayelaagbe, the National Youth Council of Nigeria was established to promote the interests of all Nigerian Youths regardless of tribal or religious line – an objective that has remained the key mandate of his leadership. “Let me also add, as earlier stated in the welcome address made by our State Secretary, Oloye Akolawole Shoremi, that Ogun State is a home of hospitality and peaceful coexistence.

“On behalf of the youth leadership of Ogun State, please be assured of an open door policy for the continued inclusiveness of our fellow youths from Ohaneze Ndigbo,” Ayelaagbe said.

The meeting, which lasted for over two hours, also witnessed other discussions around youth development and capacity building.
