The Chairman, Board of Trustees (BoT) of Rivers State Youth Leaders Assembly (RSYLA), Ambassador Kennedy Tonjo West, has accused the Federal and State governments of abandoning the Nigerian youth.
West, who made the accusation yesterday in a ‘State of the State’ paper he presented on the floor of the Rivers State House of Assembly in Port Harcourt, however said the consolation of the youth is that political leaders like Governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike are working round the clock to ameliorate the suffering of the youths.
He said: “Honestly speaking, the Nigerian youths had never been hungry the way they are now, the Nigerian youths have been abandon, forgotten and Rivers state is no exception.
“But I, our consolation is that our amiable governor, the youth friendly governor is working round the clock to ameliorate the living standard of the people. We also believe that issues of hunger and poverty will be a thing of the past once the governor settle’s down.”
