11 May 2016, 21:37

Abuja - The Minister of Youth and Sports, Solomon Dalung, has assured youth in Zamfara State of the government’s commitment to tackle the unemployment problems and other youth development challenges facing the country.

Dalung gave the assurance at the just-concluded inspection visit to the Tsafe Permanent Orientation Camp in Zamfara State as part of his efforts to obtain first hand knowledge on the welfare and security of youth across the country.

He urged them to keep faith with the present government saying it was poised to ensure local youth were given attention and were involved as future leaders.

The Minister urged them not to be deterred by the present harsh economic condition caused by failure of past goverments to adequately address the problems.

“Don't be discouraged. Destiny can be delayed but not denied,” said Dalung.

Time is now ripe to unveil the potentials of the youth, you have to be trained. Surrender yourself to best training,” he advised.

Addressing the National Youth Service Corps  members, Dalung announced that a new ambulance with ancillary medical facilities will be provided without delay.

In addition, a bigger stand-by generator that is set to improve light in the camp and upgrading of facility at the kitchen is to be undertaken.
