The Federal Ministry of Youth and Sports Development has announced plans to create a data base that will serve as reservoir from which opportunities can be accessed by the Nigerian Youth.

This according to the ministry would also ensure that proper records are kept   to enable youth derive maximum opportunities.

Minister of Youth and Sports Development Mr. Sunday Dare said the  data base would soon be created  for the  Nigerian Youth to address unemployment, age cheats and to counter falsehood.

Speaking during  the 6th edition of the Town Hall Meeting  on Friday, the Minister reiterated that there were so many opportunities for jobs, empowerment and training for the benefit of the youth.


Dare explained that youth should avail  themselves of the stream of opportunities and how to  get trained.  “For NYIF , it is important to note that the Fund  is for youth  between ages 18-35, thus if you are older than 35 years you will have difficulties in completing the  application process.  From time to time there are minor difficulties in the platform, so We have decided to use better platform which the Federal Government used to recruit people for previous  programs. This  platform makes adjustments, has flexible feature and complaints  can  be  easily taken care of” .

The Minister further stated ” If the application is successful the youth would undergo another process of being  trained by Entrepreneur Development Institute(EDI) who are certified trainers”

He then assured that there will be a review of  the  process of application to  train as many people  as possible to benefit from  the loan.
