Shina Peller Spurs Youths Involvement in Politics
As part of measures to get more youths involved in politics, a group known as Lead Generation Initiative has commenced a two-day training in Ibadan.
Our correspondent Lilian Ibomor reports that the programme was put together by a member of the House of Representatives, Chief Shina Peller.
Lead Generation Initiative is a non-political and non-profit organization committed to creating opportunities for the young people to channel their creativity and energy and values to their communities.
Chief Shina Peller, who represents Iseyin/ Itesiwaju Kajola and Iwajowa Federal Constituency, said the urge to get youths actively involved in the affairs of the nation was the brain behind the programme.
Chief Peller noted that desired change could only come if youths used energy and resources wisely.
Secretary of the association Mr Stanley Ekpa said about 70 million youths in Nigeria are the target.
Participants, who were drawn from various local governments across the state said they had gained a lot to be used at their various wards
The two day training ends on Saturday
