Align with govt programs, vision - Oluremi Tinubu urges Nigerian youths

Nigeria’s First Lady, Oluremi Tinubu, has urged youths in the country to align with government programs and vision.

She said this will enable them maximize the various opportunities that are available.

The First Lady was speaking while receiving in audience at her office at the State House, Abuja, executives and members of the Youth Wing of the Christian Association of Nigeria, YOWICAN.

Mrs Tinubu pointed out that the Association and the Church should preach the gospel of unity more.

“We should promote our ‘Nigerianness’ rather than ethnicity or culture. Yes, we are not saying we should not recognize these but we should realize and promote our togetherness. We are first and foremost Nigerians. We need that place of unity.

“There is a need for you youths to have role models who will teach you what to do and how to do them, just as the Bible talks about in Titus 2 and 1 Timothy that the older ones should teach the younger ones.”

The First Lady also admonished the guests to share the message of investing in lives.

“Technology is very good but we must let the youth know that they should use it positively,” she said.

She shared some of the programs of her office through the Renewed Hope Initiative, RHI, which include the Unity Fabric Competition, which has a N25 million prize money, and the Every Home A Garden Competition, with a prize money of N20 million.

Mrs Tinubu also prayed for the guests and Nigerian Youths in general.

Earlier in his remarks, the National Chairman of YOWICAN, Enwere Belusochukwu applauded the various initiatives of the First Lady especially through the Renewed Hope Initiative, RHI.

He also asked for her inputs on the proposed quarterly Breakfast Prayer Meeting of both Christian and Muslim youth and also on the proposed National Christian Youth Resource Center, which will include a skill acquisition center, among other facilities.

Mrs Tinubu was later presented with an Easter card and the uniform of the Association by the executives.

The First Lady was decorated as the Grand Patroness of the Youth Wing of the Christian Association in July 2023.
