UNFPA Challenges Nigeria on Youth Development

The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) has urged the Federal Government to invest more in young people for national development.

The Executive Director of UNFPA, Professor Babatunde Osotimehin, made the appeal on Wednesday during a news conference in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital.

He asked government to involve young people in policy formulation, rather than making policies and ideas for them, “does not work most times”.

Professor Osotimehin explained that young people need to be properly directed for positive contribution to national development.
