 A new dawn awaits Nigerian Youth as well as athletes as the Ministry  of Youth and Sports Development has concluded plans to create a data base that will serve as reservoir from which opportunities can be accessed.

The idea is geared towards ensuring that  proper records are kept  to enable that youth derive maximum opportunities.

 Minister  of Youth and Sports Development, 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 benefits of the youth.

Dare  explained  that youth should avail  themselves of the stream of opportunities and how to  get trained.

Dare said, “For NYIF, it is important to note that the Fund is for youth between ages 18 and 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 features and complaints can be easily taken care of. If the application is successful ,  the youth would undergo another process of being trained by Entrepreneur Development Institute (EDI) who are certified trainers”

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