Contrary to the belief that Youth have not benefited from the Nigeria Youth Investment Fund (NYIF) powered by the Federal Ministry of Youth and Sports Development (FMYSD), investigations have revealed some Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) in the region of over 5000 have benefited from the scheme approved by President Muhammadu Buhari, last year.

The Nigeria Youth Investment Fund (NYIF) is an initiative of the Federal Ministry of Youth and Sports Development (FMYSD) funded by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN). It is a N25bn fund for 3 years totaling 75bn, aimed at investing in the innovative ideas, skills and talents of Nigerian youth from age 18-35.
