From The President
12 August every year Marks the International Youth Day. A day specially chosen by the United Nations to celebrate young people all over the world. As we all know, the Youth population is the highest everywhere, and ever-growing especially in Nigeria. As such, on behalf of the National Youth Council of Nigeria, I want to wish one of the largest youth population in the world, and the largest in Africa, those at home and abroad a happy international youth day. We must celebrate our young people for the giant strides they have taken in recent years, in the entertainment industry, in the tech world and the business world.
