According to him, the signing of the bill would encourage youths to participate actively in politics and acquire leadership skills at a tender age, which he believes would potentially prolong their positive services to the country.

The President further stated that his administration is fully aware of the challenges confronting all sectors of the economy, especially education.

He noted that his government is doing everything possible to improve structures and facilities in Nigerian institutions and to provide maximum manpower and training through the various TETFUND intervention programmes.
