On the 12th of October 2020, The President and Commander in Chief of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, President Muhammadu Buhari officially launched the Presidential Youth Empowerment Scheme (P-YES) in the Presidential Villa, as a sustainable response mechanism to the growing challenges of unemployment, youth restiveness and poverty among the fast growing youth population.
- There exists in Nigeria a large army of youth who have attained the status of economic hopelessness and despondency.
- These vulnerable youth have become ready resources for the propagation of criminal activities.
- Successive empowerment programmes seem to have excluded this category of Nigerian youth.
- P-YES is designed to capture this excluded category of youth who are in urgent need of immediate intervention and rescue.
Strengthen and unleash the potential of youth’s participation in the mainstream economy by raising the value and the profile of youth participation in national economy and designing support programmes suitable to this end.
