Alhaji Nuru Kobi, director of the NOA in the state, told the Nigeria News Agency (NAN) on Thursday that the summit would be held on April 20, with more than 1,300 young people attending.
The director explained that 300 young people would be physically present at the summit while the others would join the discussion via the agency’s webner link.
He explained that the event was part of NOA’s community engagement, to identify the challenges that affect young people and expose them to the opportunities offered by the government to improve their status.
Kobi said some of the issues to be addressed at the summit include the marginalization of young people in governance, poverty, unemployment and corruption as well as the inclusion of young people in politics.
The director of the NOA said the participants would come from the 20 local authorities and 323 electoral districts of the state of Bauchi.
“We would teach young people to know and appreciate the efforts of the government in the face of their plight,” he added.
According to him, participants would be sensitized to government policies such as social investment programs and exposed to national values and ethics, migration, entrepreneurship, policy making and governance.
“We will strictly adhere to COVID-19 protocols during the summit,” he added. (NOPE)
