Nigerian youths have expressed confidence in the ability of the newly appointed Minister for Youth and Sports, Solomon Dalong, to steer the affairs of the ministry, saying he is an age-long activist who has devoted himself to canvassing for youth development and social justice.
President of the Nigerian Youth Congress, NYC, Comrade Yakubu Shendam in a statement issued in Abuja stressed that the youth were confident in the ability of the minister to mobilise Nigerian youths to provide the impetus required for social and economic development of the nation.
“We the youth of Nigeria are confident that Solomon Dalong is a square peg in a square hole.
“From his antecedents as an activist, we have no doubt that he will galvanise the talents inherent in the Nigerian youth for social and economic development of the nation.”
While congratulating the minister and 35 others who were sworn-in, Comrade Shendam charged the new appointees to reciprocate the honour by being good ambassadors of the new administration and Nigeria in general.
It would be recalled that President Muhammadu Buhari recently swore-in 36 ministers as members of his cabinet.
