Our engagements with Nigerian youths transparent, honest – Osinbajo

Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo says engagement with the Nigerian youths has to be transparent and honest in order to build a progressive society and nation.

Osinbajo’s spokesman, Laolu Akande, in a statement in Abuja, said the Vice President received at the Presidential Villa, the executive committee of the Young Parliamentarians Forum, led by its Chairman, Simon Elisha, on Tuesday.

The V-P said that the social investment programmes were not done on the basis of sharing slots between public officials or political chieftains, but in a manner whereby Nigerians who knew no one could benefit and did benefit.

While acknowledging that there were indeed important issues to be addressed, Osinbajo said the youths were not just a demography but in the majority and welcomed the support of the House of Representatives members for the newly formed National Economic Council (NEC) committee set up to interface with youths and other stakeholders on issues of employment, social safety-nets and national unity.
