Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State has assured that the youths in the state will form the bulk of his new cabinet.
This was made known in a statement issued by Crusoe Osagie, the Governor’s Special Adviser on Media and Communication Strategy, on Sunday.
While November 12 has been fixed for the inauguration of the cabinet and will be held alongside the annual Alaghodaro summit, Governor Obaseki noted that the governor was committed to ensuring that youths formed the bulk of his new cabinet.
“The governor acknowledges the role of youths in the actualisation of his second term bid. Youths make up more than half of the state’s population. So, it is only right that they determine what works best for them in government,” the statement partly read.
“The 2020 Youth Summit will enable the state government to assess the impact of the administration’s policies and programmes on job creation, youth empowerment, basic and technical education and youth participation in governance, among others.”
