The federal government has said that it will feasibly empower 15 million youths in the next five years under various youth empowerment programmes.
This was disclosed by the Special Adviser to the President on Youth Empowerment, Amb. Obinna Adim, when SAGE Nigeria paid him a courtesy visit to solicit support in Abuja yesterday.
Amb. Adim said youth empowerment was the bedrock of every great nation, noting that SAGE had become a model for youth development in Nigeria, in view of its laudable programmes.
According to him, SAGE is the hope and future of youths in the country, saying the organisation has contributed immensely to youth development since its inception in 2005.
He assured that the government would give SAGE all the necessary support it needed to host the Abuja 2013 SAGE World Cup, because Office of the President had great confidence in the abilities and its impact on the youths in the country.
In his remarks, the president of SAGE Nigeria, Agwu Amogu said the essence of the visit was to solicit the support of the federal government in hosting the Abuja 2013 SAGE World Cup.
