Rising-Up for a United Nigeria (the umbrella body for all youth groups and middle-aged citizens), has expressed optimism that with Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Godswill Obot Akpabio as President and Senate President respectively, Nigerian youths are in for an era of enterprise and innovative productivity.

In a congratulatory message to Godswill Akpabio, the President of the 10th Senate by Amb. Solomon Adodo, the convener of Rising-Up for a United Nigeria, maintained that both Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Godswill Akpabio have demonstrated enough commitment to the development of youths in their previous assignments and their tenure in office will no doubt favour Nigerian youths.

According to Amb. Solomon Adodo, “This is a particularly exciting moment for us as Nigerian youths. We know the pedigree of Senator Godswill Akpabio both as Governor, Senator and Minister. He’s a very youth oriented person both in his appointments and policies. For President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to support his bid for Senate President shows that he believes in his abilities and the two shall definitely carve a solid niche for Nigerian youths in this administration. We therefore heartily congratulate this youth friendly team and look forward to a fruitful tenure full of youth intervention programmes and favourable policies”.

The group equally passed a vote of confidence on the Tinubu administration for signing into law the Student Loan Bill, noting that the Bill which is the first in the entire African continent will open up access to higher education to many youths and Nigerians from indigent homes who could previously not afford to further their studies.

“For the first time in the history of Nigeria, an administration is showing sincere commitment for youth development. President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has been true to his campaign promises. With the signing into law the Student Loan Bill and establishing the Education Bank, no Nigerian will have any excuse not to be in school next session. By leveraging on the immense potential of Nigerian youths through quality and accessible education, Nigeria will soon be a super power”, the statement added.

The group called on Nigerians, especially the youths to put aside party differences and support the current administration, adding that this is the time to recover from all the setbacks and maladministration of the past regimes.

“This is our time for recovery, this administration has promised Nigerians renewed hope and so far, things have started working in our favour. Let us therefore stand solidly behind our President and the Senate President who have proven in words and deeds that they have our interests and that of all Nigerians at heart. Together, we shall triumph and Nigeria will be great again”, the statement concluded.
