Senator Oluremi Tinubu, CON, First Lady of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, has urged youths in the country to align with government programmes and vision.

The First Lady said doing this would enable the young population to maximise the various opportunities that are available.

She said this Monday, April 1, 2024, while receiving the Executives and members of the Youth Wing of the Christian Association of Nigeria (YOWICAN), audience in her office, in  the State House, Abuja, FCT.

Busola Kukoyi, Senior Special Assistant to the First Lady on Media, Monday, April 1, 2024, stated Senator Oluremi Tinubu urged the Association and the Church to preach the gospel of unity more in the country.

The First Lady said: “We should promote our ‘Nigerianness’ rather than ethnicity or culture.

“Yes, we are not saying we should not recognise these but we should realise and promote our togetherness.

“We are first and foremost Nigerians. We need that place of unity.”

She also noted: “There is a need for you youths to have role models who will teach you what to do and how to do them, just as the Bible talks about in Titus 2 and 1 Timothy that the older ones should teach the younger ones.”

She further admonished the guests to share the message of investing in lives.

“Technology is very good but we must let the youth know that they should use it positively,” stated Senator Tinubu.

The First Lady as well shared some of the programmes of her office through the Renewed Hope Initiative (RHI), which include the ‘Unity Fabric competition’ with a N25million prize money and the ‘Every Home A Garden competition’ with a prize money of N20million.

Senator Oluremi Tinubu also prayed for the guests and Nigerian Youths in general.

Earlier in his remarks, Enwere Belusochukwu, National Chairman of YOWICAN, had applauded the various initiatives of the First Lady, especially through the Renewed Hope Initiative.

Belusochukwu requested the First Lady’s input into the proposed quarterly Breakfast Prayer Meeting of both Christian and Muslim youths, as well as the proposed National Christian Youth Resource Centre, which will include a skill acquisition centre among other facilities.

The YOWICAN team also presented an Easter card and the uniform of the Association by the Executives to Senator Tinubu during the visit.

The youth equally decorated the Nigerian First Lady as the Grand Patroness of the Youth Wing of the Christian Association July 2023.
