The Afenifere For Collective Transformation (ACT) has paid glowing tributes to Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello for approving constitution of the State Youth Development Commission.
The ACT) Director General, Prince Tolu Ajayi in a statement made available to TheAffairs noted that the development shows Bello has been leading by example in terms of youths and women centred policies and urged other Nigerian governors to emulate him.
According to him, the approval for the constitution of Kogi State Youth Development Commission is another giant step in the right direction that will further put Kogi state youths in the forefront of national and global development.
The statement reads “There has been series of pioneering initiatives from the governor of Kogi state Governor Yahaya Bello since he assumed office in the past few years. Many of these initiatives are policies that are people oriented and centered on human development especially as it concerns Children, as youths, women and people with disabilities. It is obvious that Governor Yahaya Bello is not in anyway relenting on being a political pathfinder and a frontliner in this regard as he continue to lead the way for other governors across the country to follow.
“Afenifere For Collective Transformation (ACT) led by the Director General, Prince Tolu Ajayi is using this medium of this press release to celebrate with Kogi state youths on the kind of leader they have as governor. It is obvious that Kogi state youths are the luckiest in Nigeria in term of political and leadership engagement from their governor. While youths across the country are still begging to be relevant in their local governments, Kogi youths are already the ones running local government administrations effectively as chairmen and councillors. Kogi youths are leaders in their various local government and the women are not left out as well being saddled with the position of Deputy local government chairpersons and party leaders across the state.
“The approval for the constitution of Kogi State Youth Development Commission is another giant step in the right direction that will further put Kogi state youths in the forefront of national and global development. Afenifere For Collective Transformation ACT is in many ways envious of the youths of Kogi state for having a leader who is constantly putting their welfare first. Afenifere For Collective Transformation hereby use this medium to call on the governor of Kogi state Governor Yahaya Bello to please help us to address his fellow governors to take the same steps by involving youths in their policies like himself. We implore him to facilitate the same for other youths across the country especially for those of us in the southwest as we are seriously in need of such commission too so as to address our welfare.
“It is on this note that we congratulate Kogi youths once again and also appreciate Governor Yahaya Bello for his all times youth friendly policies and initiatives.”
