A youth empowerment support scheme, Project “Go-Get Gold 4Goodluck,” has tasked the federal government and corporate organisations on talents discovery and development of youths in the country.

Facilitators of the project, FullHouse Media Limited, made this charge in its 2013 International Youth Day (IYD) message.

According to a statement signed by the publisher, Ekene Igwekile, Full House Media appealed to relevant authorities to focus attention on issues concerning the youths through special programmes to address their needs, rights, interest and obligations.


Ekene emphasises the need for a comprehensive plan and programmes for youth development in line with the country’s vision of preparing the youths for future. “Almost everything that is great has been done by the youths,” he said.

Ekene noted that youthful population was armed with diverse knowledge derived from movie/music, ICT, academic, etc, adding that Nigerian youths have gained an increased understanding of the development needs of the nation and broaden their experience by living and working in a cross-cultural environment across the states.

He also urged Nigerian leaders to take action in ensuring a safe and healthy society.

“The youths depend on the collective actions of individual leaders. Leaders themselves depend more on the youths because they believe that young people are full of creative abilities, they have dreams, and it is to them that the empire of the future belongs. Nigerian youths use their skills and expertise to actively contribute to the nation building,” he added.

He however said the project Go-Get Gold 4Goodluck would inspire youths in Nigeria to become self-reliant and socially responsible citizens of federal republic of Nigeria, within and in Diaspora. [ThisDay]
