Inauguration: Tinubu’s son says incoming administration will give priority to  youths

Agency report
Mr Seyi Tinubu, son of Sen. Bola Tinubu, the President-elect has assured Nigerian youths that the incoming administration will give priority to youths by ensuring a youth friendly government.
He gave the assurance while speaking at a Renewed Hope Concert organised to usher in the incoming administration which ended on Thursday night in Abuja.
The concert which was attended by youths from across the 36 states of the country had in attendance, Tinubu, the President-elect and Sen. Kashim Shettima the Vice President-elect.
Tinubu was earlier conferred with the National honour of the Grand Commander of the the Federal Republic (GCFR), by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Speaking on why the concert was organised, Seyi who was the Chairman of its Local Organising Committee (LOC) explained that the concert was aimed at celebrating the bravery of Nigeria youths.
This, he said, was especially with youths that gave in their time, talents and treasure towards the actualisation of the success of his father, the President-elect during Feb.25 presidential election.
He said the concert was particularly aimed at unifying Nigerian youths with one goal and one future.
Tinubu added that it was also intended to intentionally involve other youths across political divides that Nigeria was one, irrespective of their religious, political or ethnical affiliations.
He assured young Nigerians that the next administration under his father’s leadership would be “youth-centric” right from inception till the end of the administration.
Ameer Shettima, son of the Vice President-elect who also doubled as the Vice Chairman of the LOC of the concert noted that youths were the true heros of sustainable democracy.
He stressed the need for Nigerian youths to always think and put Nigeria first ahead of any divide or collective interest.
Shettima urged Nigerian youths, especially those with the belief that Nigeria could not be better to be rest assured that Renewed Hope was here to stay for a better Nigeria that we all craved for.
The Secretary of the LOC, Dada Olusegun, said that apart from being a unity concert, the concert  was to appreciate young Nigerians for their efforts and supports towards the emergence of Tinubu as President-elect at the polls.
“The Nigerian Youths didn’t just go out to vote, but they defended our democracy from being truncated, so we have to celebrate them, this is our own way of appreciating them.” he said.
Ademuyiwa Taofeek, Chairman of the Media Committee of the Renewed Hope Concert noted that Tinubu’s electoral victory at the polls was worth celebrating, this, he said was the reason the concert was organised.
Taofeek said youths were the upholder of sustainable democracy and should not allow themselves to be dissuaded with fake news which could truncate a democratic rule, but be a redeemer of the true democracy.
The event was attended by Sen. Godswill Akpabio, Federal Capital Territory (F.C.T) Minister of State Hajia Ramatu Aliyu, Minister of Youth and Sports Sunday Dare among others.
Also at the event, were APC National Women Leader, Dr Beta Edu, Deputy Women Leader Hajia Zainab Ahmad and APC National Youth Leader, Dayo Isreal among many other prominent Nigerians.
