Youths vehicle for development – Osun governor’s aide

The Senior Special Assistant to the Osun State Governor on Student Affairs and Social Mobilisation Adegboyega Oyetola, Kehinde Ayantunji has said the recognition of the position of the youths in society is the reason behind the state government’s policies on education, economy, mining and agriculture.

Ayantunji also disclosed that the policies which revolved around youth development were not accidental but conscious efforts to build a brighter future for the state.

Ayantunji who made this known at a one-day symposium in commemoration of the 2022 International Youth Day organised by the National Youth Council of Nigeria (NYCN), Osun State Chapter in Osogbo on Saturday assured that despite the current electoral setback the administration suffered in the last election, it will continue to strive to sustain its interventions on youth development.

This he said will bring about the reduction of crime and set back poverty in the state.

While advocating concerted efforts in sustaining an enduring and all-inclusive youth agenda for the people, Ayantunji charged the society to begin to raise the consciousness in advancing the cause of the youth towards nation-building, national integration and development.

In his word, “the time has come to bridge intergenerational solidarity gaps and address the missing links of building a virile, healthy and workable nation
