Shonekan canvasses youth empowerment

By Clifford Ndujihe

LAGOS—TO improve and sustain our economic growth, elder statesman and former Head of Interim National Government, Chief Ernest Shonekan, has enjoined governments at all levels to empower youths.

According to him, the youths should be empowered because they constitute the majority of the nation’s 170 million population and the future of the country belongs to them.

He spoke at his Ikoyi, Lagos home, yesterday, while receiving a team from the office of the Special Adviser to the President on the Amnesty Programme, Kingsley Kuku.

Noting that the the nation’s economy is currently doing well, he said there is need for the government to sustain the momentum and expressed joy for the effort the Federal Government is making in the implementation of the Presidential Amnesty programme.
