Using the Power of Youth – Let’s See Todays News Updates

In Nigeria, childbirth is currently underway. The emergence of a new, powerful empire will shock the world. An important player in this transition process is the youth.
Youth is a variable and a driving force for economic, social, political and cultural change. According to the 2019 National Youth Policy, Nigerian youth are classified as 15-29 years old.
According to, Nigeria, which accounts for 27 percent of the world’s youth, is younger than the world’s three largest economies, the United States, China and Japan. Unfortunately, this advantage did not significantly affect the country’s economic prosperity, social cohesion, or political stability.
It is important to re-educate every Nigerian about the role of youth in the country’s development. When young people are excluded from the political process, they are little or no help in influencing political decisions.
The main result is a weakened representation of the political system. Nigerian youth must be involved in the formal political process and have a say in shaping today’s and tomorrow’s politics to bring about long-term change.
Inclusive participation in politics is a fundamental democratic and political right and is important for the development of a stable and peaceful society while developing policies that meet the specific needs of young people.
Young people need to be aware of their rights and have the knowledge and capacity to participate meaningfully at all levels in order to be adequately represented in the process, political institutions, elections and decision-making.
As the 2023 elections approach, the Independent National Election Commission, INEC and other political stakeholders should allow young people to participate in the preparations for the next elections.
Education about the national election campaign should also be part of the core curriculum for all primary and secondary school students. In recent years, Nigeria has become an incubator for some of Africa’s most popular startups.
As of December 2020, Nigeria had more than 154 million Internet users, the highest number recorded in Africa. Over time, this dominant Internet environment has given birth to a generation of technology entrepreneurs, especially young people, and innovation and businesses have helped improve the lives of people in Nigeria and elsewhere.
Today, digitalization is revolutionizing the global economy, expanding the boundaries of innovation and redefining the boundaries of international trade.

Countries such as China, Japan, and the United States, which promote digital and innovation-based cultures, are pioneering the global transition to knowledge-based industries, changing people’s lives and businesses and creating incredible wealth and jobs.
This transition has been made possible by the large-scale operation of technology businesses in a favorable environment, including the contribution of the private sector and the government. With the recent ban on social media and tough policies, Nigeria may be missing out on the innovations and inventions of great young people who have migrated to more adapted countries.
In return, the government should negotiate with young technology entrepreneurs to share their grievances and offer sustainable solutions to create the supportive environment needed for technological advancement. In addition, more funding is needed for technology entrepreneurs and start-ups to encourage more young people to participate in technology.
China has proven to the world that developing trade depends on a well-developed industry and agriculture. Their remarkable development began about 40 years ago with the Industrial Revolution to make them a world power. China is currently the world’s largest producer of agricultural and industrial goods, dominating trade in Africa and many other countries.
This success is due to the abundance of labor and natural resources. Similarly, Nigeria has been blessed with vast resources and a large and young workforce. However, the country’s economic performance remains poor due to mismanagement and underutilization of resources. Graphs of global economic trends show that the contribution of agriculture and manufacturing to Nigeria’s gross domestic product and GDP is gradually declining.

Unemployment affects 33% of young people, making it second only to Nigeria and Namibia in the global unemployment rate. In just a few years, Nigeria will witness a remarkable economic recovery by prioritizing manufacturing and agriculture.
The rapid development of industry and agriculture is a guarantee of a significant reduction in high unemployment. This will reduce crime among young people and make Nigeria a safer place to live.
Furthermore, if the arts, entertainment and recreation sectors are adequately studied, they can become one of the most profitable sectors of the Nigerian economy. It is perhaps the strongest unifying force in a multinational.
The demographics of the sector show that the majority of those involved are young people, as creativity and the ability to innovate increase at a young age. However, a number of bureaucracies and bottlenecks have made the sector unattractive to investors and investors.
According to, the sector contributed only 0.3 percent of GDP in the first quarter of 2021. This is 3.2 percent lower than the contribution of the United States and other world economies. Constant negligence and mismanagement limit his opportunities.
With funding, proper infrastructure development, cooperation with foreign investors, and basic support for aspiring young people, Nigeria’s arts, entertainment and recreation sector will soon catch up with its foreign partners.
In short, young people value their contributions, respect their rights, and thrive on people and policies that value them. The participation of young people in the process of building a country increases its effectiveness and contributes to its development.
In the long run, Nigeria will once again become a global economic power. Recognizing the importance of youth and the future of Nigeria depends on their development is an important component of our social, economic and political stability.
