“Nigeria has over the past few years recorded series of events that has threatened our existence as a once peaceful nation, the perpetrators are usually idle youths who have become tools in the hands of the evil ones who send them on these ungodly assignments,” she added
“MGWN hopes to promote a peaceful and mutually tolerant Nigeria by investing in the youths. “Young people are on the front lines of political and social change and have the power to renew cultures as well as maintain important traditions. youth skills training encourage employments and paves way for youth to build the green economy we need. It is absolutely critical that youth empowerment is promoted and supported through inclusive, effective, inspiring and innovative projects that promote their rights.”
