•Sokoto Governor’s SA on Youth Matters, Nuraddeen Harande Mahe

The Sokoto Government says it is committed to the integration of youths in all its programmes and policies for the overall development of the state.

Malam Nuraddeen Harande Mahe, Special Adviser on Youth Matters to Governor Aminu Tambuwal, stated this in his office while inaugurating Youth Volunteers Network in Sokoto State (Himma Matasa) yesterday, Monday, December 30, 2019.

He said the programme is aimed at mobilising one million youth volunteers in the state in two years, so as to participate in the socio-economic development of the state.

“The project is aimed at reviving the spirit of volunteerism in the minds of Sokoto youths, build a network of youth within the state and serve as a youth data bank, for the purpose of closing the deficits in the area of health, sanitation, security and education, among others,” Nura Harande said.

He explained that the programme has a steering committee at the state level, headed by himself and coordinators in all the 23 local government areas in the state.

The Special Adviser said the present administration has transformed the status of the youths in the state through the creation of various opportunities for them to be independent.

He noted that the massive involvement of youths in community development would help them to consolidate on the achievements of the present administration.

Nura called on people in the state to support the programme and give suggestions where necessary, for the even development of the state.
