Dr Jamila Bio Ibrahim has been selected as the Minister of Youth, while Mr Ayodele Olawande has been nominated as the Minister of State for the same ministry. These nominations, though subject to confirmation by the Nigerian Senate, signal a commitment to harnessing the potential of young, innovative leaders in the country’s leadership.

President Bola Tinubu has high expectations for these nominees. He encourages them to embody the dynamism, innovative spirit, and unwavering commitment that define Nigeria’s youth. Their roles are vital in addressing the unique challenges and opportunities facing the country’s young population.
As Nigeria seeks to navigate the complexities of governance and address the aspirations of its youthful population, the nomination of Dr. Jamila Bio Ibrahim and Mr. Ayodele Olawande represents a significant step forward.
