Grace Attah, BYIN’s project leader, assigned the task during her visit to Nasarawa State University, Keffi, on Tuesday.
The Being Young in Naija project is a youth advocacy campaign launched in September 2020 by OXFAM.
“It is presented as part of an OXFAM youth-focused and directed project, Work In Progress,” Atta said.
He said that if young people were actively involved in governance, it would promote peace and development across the country.
“Second, it is also to highlight the experiences, challenges and opportunities available to young people.
“The third goal is to hold stakeholders accountable for youth development,” he said.
Attah noted that BYIN advocated for the full implementation of the National Youth Policy for the overall development of youth and the country as a whole.
He added that the initiative planned to take the youth campaign to the six geopolitical zones of the country.
In his comments, Professor Mohammed Bala, Vice Chancellor of Nasarawa State University, Keffi, praised BYIN for bringing the campaign to the institution.
Bala, representative of the university, Mr. Abraham Ekpo, said that the institution will continue to identify with any organization that is ready for development.
He said that the institution will continue to maintain the standard and academic excellence for the general development of the country.
In response, Mr. Ayenaje Gbefwi, SUG President, NSUKeffi, and Ms. Loveth Amadu, participants, speaking on behalf of other students, praised BYIN for its initiative and asked for their support.
