In an interactive Session with the Press and general Public, the Cice President for Africa, Comr. Preye J. Ketebu-Brown was quoted as saying “President Muhammadu Buhari never hesitates to champion youth inclusion in governance. The World Assembly of Youth (WAY) views President Muhammadu Buhari’s recent directive to his Chief of Staff and Secretary to the Government of the Federation, for immediate engagement of Youth in governance through Board appointments at all levels, as a major milestone in Youth quest for Political Inclusion across the World. Such policy directive if adhered to stands the chance of rejigging governance in Nigeria through the injection of smart young minds into Boards and Agencies of Government.”
