Noble Youth Mass Support Association (NYMSA), an NGO, has called on governments at all levels to include youths in the governance of the country for the development of democracy.

The National Coordinator of the group, Mr Godwin Onmonya, made the appeal in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Friday in Abuja to commemorate June 12 Democracy Day.

NAN reports that President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019, recognised the outcome of the June 12, 1993, Presidential Election and declared June 12 as a national Democracy Day.

According to him, the government should engage youths in such a way to make them achieve the desired SDGs that would help tackle national and global challenges.

NAN reports that the SDGs are universal agenda for transformation, aimed at integrating economic, social and environmental development.

“Democracy should be by the people and for the people, through youths’ active participation in governance and citizenship engagements.

“Young people are good communicators; therefore, the government should provide substantive engagement for youths to ensure sustainable development in the country.

“That makes a good case why young Nigerians should engage political office holders, especially their representatives,” he said.

Onmonya explained that the success of the country depends on the full participation and engagement of youths in the planning, implementation and monitoring of policies.

He, however, called on the youth to fulfill their roles as agents of unity, positive change as well as sustainable development.

“The future of humanity and of our planet lies in today’s younger generation, who will pass the torch to future generations.

“It is glaring that we have credible youths who have proved globally in knowledge and social consciousness and have enhanced the capacity of the Nigerian youths.

“However, the ability to utilise these assets effectively to drive national transformation will depend on the leadership opportunities available to them,” he said.
