    WELCOME ADDRESS BY HIS EXCELLENCY, MR. GODWIN NOGHEGHASE OBASEKI, THE GOVERNOR OF EDO STATE, AT THE EDO STATE STRATEGY DIALOGUE ON EDO YOUTH DEVELOPMENT POLICY ON 16TH AUGUST 2022.

    I welcome you to this occasion today which is the strategy dialogue on the Edo State Youth Development Policy.

    Firstly, I thank you for being present here today as you are critical stakeholders in youth development. Some of you have partnered with government to ensure that the issues of youths are not only raised but addressed and it is a process that we will continue to work on while doing our best to leave no one behind.

    The strength of any nation is in her youth population and the strategic thing to do is to equip this teeming population with the tools and techniques to be productive.

    My administration has carried out laudable projects geared at skills development and other employment opportunities. We have monumental projects like the Edo Innovation hub, the Edo Production center, Edo Tech Park and the Edo Creative Hub. These have been put in place to get the youths and even teenagers engaged in activities that are relevant for today’s thriving enterprise.

    We have decided to make issues that relate to youth development more structured through an important legal framework that will transcend this administration through the Edo Youth Development Policy, for which we are gathered here today. This policy will address critical and relevant issues that Edo Youths face and measures that will be put in place to enable them have access to basic services that their age demographic require.

    As a government, we have prioritized issues of education, infomation technology, agriculture, health, skills development ensuring that there is a level playing field for everyone and this we will continue to strengthen.

    This policy will highlight areas relevant to youths and initiate where necessary, structures that will be springboards for youth empowerment.

    I congratulate the Edo State Ministry of Youth and Humanitarian Affairs on this first step towards a legacy for youth development in our dear State.

    I enjoin you all to actively participate and carefully articulate issues and solutions that will enable government and non-state actors pull their weight in the empowerment of youths in Edo State.

    The youths have demonstrated readiness for growth, so it behooves on us to provide the safe space for them to become achievers. This we have started and this we will continue to do.

    Once again, I welcome you to this event and let’s make Edo State Great Again!
