Edo youths who have for long wrestled with how their glorious future was being eroded before their very eyes may soon begin to heave a sigh of relief if the concerted efforts to redress their situation yield the desired results.

The Edo State Commissioner of Youths and Humanitarian Affairs, Hon. Zubairu Dada Abubakar has taken up the gauntlet on their behalf and is leaving no stone unturned to ensure they enjoy a more befitting and glorious future,.

Accompanied by some of the top directors in his ministry amongst is the Director of Youth, Mr. Victor Asiriuwa JP, and Mrs. Joy Izegaegbe, the Director of Humanitarian Affairs, Hon. Abubakar paid a working visit to Abuja where he held extensive talks with the relevant ministries and their supervising ministers on the ways to empower and make the lives of Edo youths a lot more meaningful

And, in a rare spirit of cooperation, his first port of call was the office of the Honorable Minister of the Niger Delta development, Hon. Abubakar Momoh.

The meeting with Hon. Momoh paved the way for the visiting commissioner and his team to hold similar discussions with the officials of the ministry of Humanitarian and Poverty Alleviation

Luckily, Hon. Dada Abubakar found a soulmate in his fellow Edo kinsman Hon. Abubakar Momoh who is also desirous in empowering the youths.

Their discussions centered mainly on how to reduce youth restiveness and provide them with life skills.

In this regard, both men developed some far-reaching measures which their respective ministries will knock into a policy framework for implementation

Particularly instructive was the assurance by Hon. Momoh of his ministry’s involvement in whatever policy the state government may develop to empower Edo youths

Incidentally, Edo State is one of the few states in the country that thought it fit to establish a humanitarian affairs ministry
