I t is a great disarming truth and a humble one too that young people are the great contributors and back-born of any top-notch economy on earth. When we think of the most advanced and developed countries, we think youths, we think innovation and these two have greatly transformed and sustained countries like America, Japan, China, Germany to mention but a few. Ipso facto we need to engage and support the Nigerian youths and empower them to do exploit. I strongly believe that with YEN platform we can collectively build a world-class economy for Nigeria through national and grassroots talent harnessing, unity of purpose, effective communication and youth entrepreneurship development.
YEN as a platform will selflessly and relentlessly continue to promote youth entrepreneurship development and healthy competition that will create jobs, wealth and security to enhance the development and growth of our Nigerian economy into a world-class one.
