Collaboration, effective governance, and the commitment to serving the nation’s interests will be crucial in achieving the desired acrobatic change that Nigerians anticipate.
“Sure, there is optimism surrounding the capacity and capability of the appointed ministers. President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s confidence in their abilities is definitely a positive sign. Encouraging the youth to support these ministers is an important step towards fostering collaboration and inclusiveness in governance.
“Having ministers who are youth-accommodating and friendly can be beneficial in addressing the concerns and aspirations of young people. It is essential that the ministers create an environment where the youth can actively participate in decision-making processes and contribute their valuable insights and perspectives. By being accessible, open-minded, and receptive to the needs of the younger generation, the ministers can build trust and engage the youth in constructive dialogue.
“Furthermore, youth-friendly policies and initiatives should be prioritized to address the unique challenges faced by young people, such as unemployment, education, and social empowerment. Investing in youth development programs, entrepreneurship opportunities, and skills training can provide the necessary support for young individuals to thrive and contribute to the nation’s progress.
“Overall, fostering a positive relationship between the appointed ministers and the youth is crucial for effective governance and long-term development. With collaborative efforts, inclusive policies, and open communication, it is possible to create an environment where the voices and aspirations of the youth are heard and valued.
“The call for ministers to uphold the trust of the Nigerian people and prioritize the interest of the masses in their official duties is an important one. Public officials have a responsibility to act in the best interest of the citizens they serve and to promote the growth and unity of the nation.
“By doing the right thing, ministers are expected to demonstrate transparency, accountability, and integrity in their actions. They should make decisions that are based on the welfare of the people, ensuring that policies and initiatives are designed to benefit the broader population. This includes addressing issues such as poverty, infrastructure development, healthcare, education, and job creation.
“Furthermore, ministers should be mindful of the diverse needs and aspirations of the Nigerian people. They should engage in inclusive governance, seeking input from different segments of society and considering the perspectives of marginalized groups. By fostering unity and inclusiveness, ministers can contribute to a stronger and more cohesive nation.
“It is crucial for ministers to be diligent and dedicated in their roles, taking their responsibilities seriously and working towards the betterment of the country. This involves being proactive, responsive, and accountable to the people they serve. Regular evaluation and monitoring of their performance can help ensure that they are meeting the expectations of the Nigerian people and fulfilling their duties effectively,” Edoh added.
