Ihedioha commends youths’ participation in constitution review

Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Emeka Ihedioha has commended Nigerian youths for showing enthusiasm and participating actively in the constitution amendment process particularly, the peoples’ public sessions held on November 10 across 360 federal constituencies in the country.

The Deputy Speaker has also congratulated Imo State natives called to the bar on Tuesday and urged them to be good ambassadors of the state to justify the training and upbringing they received from their parents, guardians and society in general. Ihedioha spoke at the National Assembly when he received Imo natives from the 27 local government areas of the state called to the Nigerian Bar on a courtesy visit.

He used the opportunity of the visit to praise the efforts of Nigerian youths in buying into the constitution review exercise of the National Assembly and urged them to continue to follow through the process till an amended constitution is produced for the country.

“For the youths, including some among you here that participated in the peoples’ public sessions on the constitution review, I must commend you and say to you that you have written your names in gold when the history of constitution amendment will be told in the future,” he said.

He admonished the new wigs to brace up to the realities of life after school and be bold enough to confront challenges so that they can become responsible and responsive citizens of Imo State and Nigeria in general. Speaking earlier on behalf of the visiting delegation, Kingson Uwandu said the new wigs were proud to associate with the deputy speaker and indeed other members of the House of Representatives from Imo State and urged them to continue to provide mentorship to young people.

    Youths should not only be commended for being part of constitutional review process but should be encouraged to take part in the conduct of policy and affairs of our nation. Therefore, it is important that today’s youth be encourage to take interest in government decision making activities and that opportunities be created to foster civic participation by young people.The National Assembly should as a matter of necessity endeavour to show commitment in youth development through youth representation in governance because Youths are basically an indispensable integral part of the society, so issues affecting them should not be ignored. They should not be seen as problems to be fixed because if they are involved in decision making and governance in general through empowerment to impact in their lives, they become assets and resources to the government and nation at large in proffering lasting solutions to societal ills thereby creating positive social change in our society.
