Atiku Says Youth Minister Will be 30 Years Old
Atiku Promises a Youth Inclusive Government
The former vice-president said this at a Town Hall meeting with youth in Lagos on Monday, December 17, adding that he will appoint a youth minister who is 30 years old or below.
He also promised to give 40 percent of his government to young people, assuring youths that he knows how to empower them.
“I have pledged that 40 percent of my government will be youth. Let me assure you that it’s a promise and I won’t break it. My minister of youth is going to be less than 30 years.
“President Buhari has confessed that the economy is in bad shape under his watch and it is clear that the President is short of ideas about how to fix the broken economy. There is no single economist in his administration and that is why we are in this mess.
“I know how to fix a broken economy. I know how to create jobs and I also know how to empower the youth. That’s the reason I’m here today – to give hope to you the youth that together we can get Nigeria working again,” he said.
