 A new dawn awaits Nigerian Youth as well as Atheletes  as the Ministry  of Youth and sports Development is  planning to create a data base that will serve as reservoir from which opportunities  can be  accessed. 

This would also ensure that  proper records are kept   to enable youth derive  maximum opportunities.

 Minister  of Youth and Sports Development  Mr. 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 benefit of the youth.

Dare  explained  that  youth should  

 avail  themselves of the stream of opportunities and how to  get trained.  “For NYIF ,  it is important to note that the Fund   is for youth  between  ages 18-35, 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 feature and complaints  can  be  easily taken care of” . 

The Minister further stated ” If the application is successful ,  the youth would undergo  another process  of being  trained by Entrepreneur Development Institute(EDI) who are certified trainers”

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