Special Assistant to the President on Youth and Students Affairs, Nasir Adhama, has said the next three years of the President Muhammadu Buhari administration promises to be more eventful for the Nigerian youths with innovative programmes and activities.

In a message of felicitation to Nigerians on the occasion of the first anniversary of the administration, Mr Adhama expressed gratitude to the Nigerian youth for their patience in the last one year.

In a statement signed by his Media Aide, Gidado Shuaib, the presidential aide explained that various programmes and platforms have been outlined to empower the Nigerian youth and students by creating opportunities for them to develop their potentials to the fullest and live more productive lives.

He said: “I am glad to have witnessed this day and to be part of the present administration. I am quite aware of your high expectations from this administration and I want to assure you that President Buhari places high premium on the youth as vanguards of change, and he is committed to our welfare, interest and future.”

According to Adhama, “The Social Protection Programme launched by President Muhammadu Buhari recently, will lift millions of Nigerians out of poverty as well as provide employment opportunities for many Nigerians, among them 500,000 teachers and 100,000 artisans.”

He also recalled the President’s introduction of the one-meal-per-day programme, which he said when it commences, would aim at combating malnutrition among children and improving learning outcomes as well as enrolment, adding that over 5.5 million children will benefit from the programme.

Mr. Adhama said government’s cash transfer scheme and enterprise programme targeting market women, artisans and agricultural workers would not only alleviate poverty but empower women to contribute to national development.

He called on the youth, especially students to reciprocate the government’s gesture in launching the education grant scheme for undergraduates in science, technology, engineering and mathematics by remaining committed to their studies and shunning all vices capable of distracting the government from its goal of laying a solid foundation for economic revival and human capital development.
