Nigeria: Youths Seek 30 Percent Representation in National Dialogue

The Coalition of Youth Organizations for National Conference (COYONAC) has demanded that youths in the country should be represented in the planned National Conference.

The organization said that considering the size of the country, at least 30 percent of Nigerian youths should be represented in the National Dialogue.

Convener of a youth programme held in Abuja by COYONAC, Comrade Wale Ajani said that this was necessary since youths were the leaders of tomorrow, adding that the world was fast becoming digital where the old generation were no longer relevant in the scheme of things.
