The Nigerian Diaspora Youth Ambassadors (NDYA) has admonished youths in the country to take up leadership positions, saying despite being in the majority, the number of young Nigerians in leadership positions is still low.
Addressing a press conference on Wednesday in Abuja ahead of its event tagged, ‘Take It All’, the president of NDYA, David Alozie, said the organisation has built centres that will help harness the potentials of youths in the country.
Alozie said once the youths are empowered, it will reduce crime and criminality in the country and also boost the nation’s economy.
He said youths in the country were tired of recycling past leaders, adding that it was time for them to step up and take the stage.
According to him, “We are tired of recycling leaders. We want to unveil the potentials of Nigerian youths this time.
“Take It All Nigerian Youths signifies awakening; creating more awareness, pushing Nigerian youths to wake up to what they are supposed to do years back.
“The youths need to step up and take up leadership positions in the country. Their roles will help to enhance the economy and contribute to the overall development of the country.”
He added the part of the target of the group was to bridge the gap between youths in the country and those in the diaspora.
