“This day provides an opportunity for all of us, both youth and adults alike, to reflect on the future of our nation; to decide on the active and participatory role that we want our young people to play in the governance of our country; and to work towards building a nation that the upcoming generation would be proud of.

“The 8th Senate remains committed to furthering the opportunities of our young people. Through our work on educational initiatives like the amendment of the UBEC Act, we hope to develop the minds of our young ones — to make them competitive internationally.

“With our push to restructure our existing access to finance laws, we hope to provide more opportunities for young people — to make them self-sufficient and employers of labour.

“Additionally, last month’s passage of the #NotTooYoungToRun Bill as part of the Constitutional Amendment, is a clear indication that this Senate is ready and willing to welcome more young Nigerians into positions of government.

“This has been done because now more than ever, with the state of our present-day economy, our nation must bridge its generational divides and work together to forge a new Nigeria.

“For Nigeria to work for all its citizens, the fiery ingenuity of our youth must be blended with the dependable experience of our older generation. In this regard, I urge all young Nigerians, to continue contributing their quota to the upliftment our nation.
