Hey there, middle schoolers! Exciting news! President Bola Tinubu has chosen Dr. Jamila Bio Ibrahim to be the Minister of Youth. But hold on, she still needs to be confirmed by the Senate. Fingers crossed!
Jamila Ibrahim is a young medical doctor who has done some amazing things. She was the President of the Progressive Young Women Forum (PYWF) and also worked as the Senior Special Assistant to the Kwara State Governor on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Impressive, right?
Another person Tinubu nominated is Mr. Ayodele Olawande. He is a community development expert and a youth leader in the All Progressives’ Congress (APC). From 2019 to 2023, he worked in the Office of the Special Adviser to the President on Innovation. Sounds like he knows a thing or two!
President Tinubu wants both Jamila Ibrahim and Ayodele Olawande to bring their energy, creativity, and hard work to their roles. He believes that young people in Nigeria are full of potential and wants them to shine as they carry out their duties.
